Singh was said to be neck-deep in debts as a result of repeated crop failure, according to the brother of the deceased. He was burnt beyond recognition after setting the paddy stock in his fields on fire.

The man was making preparations for his fourth daughter's wedding but didn't have enough to support her. He had three daughters who were already married.

The bride's father didn't have any other source of income and decided to take his own life out of frustration.

“Farmers have no alternative source of income. If their crops fail, they fall into a debt trap and seldom emerge out of it. With the government insensitive to their plight, they see no ray of hope. Nevertheless, it is odd that Jaswant chose to commit suicide on the day of his daughter’s wedding,” said a mourner at the house of the deceased.
