Two debt-ridden farmers have allegedly committed suicide in west Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, police said on Saturday.

The deceased were identified as Mahadeo Shrirang Bhagat (50) of village Chinchkheda in adjoining Washim district and Kachruba Punjaji Vadya (50) of village Sakharkherda in Buldana district, they said.

Both suicides by hanging were reported on Friday.

The cotton growing region in East Maharashtra has seen no respite from spate of suicides by farmers even after the launch of several relief measures, including a Rs 3,500-crore package announced by the Prime Minister in July last year.
