Mandya, Jun 18: A farmer from the taluk hanged himself near his agricultural field at Aghalaya village in K R Pet taluk on account of failure of crop caused by drought situation.

The fact that he had captured his last moments on video came to the knowledge of others after the family members came home after performing his funeral and then switched his cell phone on.
