60 year-old father takes his own life over economic pressure

A 60-year old father in Galgamuwa has reportedly died by suicide over economic pressure.

The victim was a resident of Walaswewa, Galgamuwa and had been engaged in chena farming and hired labour for a living.

He lived in a small hut with his wife and had been struggling to earn an income amid a failed melon plantation in his chena due to the absence of pesticides and fertiliser.

In the backdrop, he had taken his own life by hanging himself from a tree in his own chena three days ago (29), revealed the victim’s wife and granddaughter.
