A farmer named Karamveer had committed suicide at Tikri Border at night on February 6, 2021. The farmer, hailing from Singhwal Village of Jind District, was found hanging to a tree in the morning of February 7, 2021. He was found dead at a park two kilometres away from the Tikri Border.
The farmer has allegedly left a suicide note, saying:
“Hail Bharatiya Kisan Union! My beloved farmer brothers, this Modi Government is only giving us dates. It has no idea when these black laws will be withdrawn. We will not go until and unless these laws are taken back. Thank you – Karamveer Singh Pal”.
एक और आत्महत्या, एक और मौत

The farmer had a family of three daughters and a wife. This is however not the first case of suicide in the current farmers agitation. The first case of suicide was of Sant Baba Rahim Singh, a religious leader from Haryana’s Karnal district, who killed himself. Farmers named Amarjit Singh Rai (63) and Niranjan Singh, along with a lawyer from Punjab have earlier killed themselves by consuming poison.
The farmers, a majority of who are from Punjab, Haryana and West UP, have been protesting at the borders of Delhi since the November 26 against the three contentious laws passed by the Modi Government. The farmers demand a complete withdrawal of these laws along with sanctioning of Minimum Support Price as a legal right. Around 190 farmers have so far died in these protests.
