Jaipur: The farmer suicide case in Nagaur district of Rajasthan took a new turn on Thursday with the district SP receiving a complaint that it was a murder and not suicide.

Superintendent of Police (Nagaur) Harendra Kumar said that three-four people of the farmer's community met him on Thursday and handed over the complaint alleging that Manglaram was murdered and it was not a case of suicide.

"I forwarded the complaint to additional SP of Didwana for a probe into the matter. Statements of the complainants will be recorded," he said.

Manglaram was found hanging from the ceiling fan at his residence on Sunday morning and his family members alleged that he committed suicide due to mounting debts.

The family members had claimed that the farmer was depressed after the bank from which he had taken the loan issued a notice to attach his property.

State Congress chief Sachin Pilot visited the family of Manglaram in Charanwas village of Nagaur on Wednesday and announced to repay the dues.
