Fed up with alleged harassment by an arhtiya, a landless farmer from nearby Tahli village today committed suicide. The deceased was identified as Jaswant Singh.

Before ending his life, he made a video on his mobile phone wherein he held Master Mehnga Singh, an arhtiya of Begowal, responsible for his death. He sent the video to his brother Kamaljit Singh.

Jaswant Singh stated that he had taken a loan of Rs 3,25,000 from the arhtiya and mortgaged his house.
