As news of the incident spread, DSP Kesappa promptly arrived at the crime scene to initiate an investigation. "We have arrived at the location after receiving the information and are in the process of probing the incident. Further details are yet to be uncovered," stated DSP Kesappa. The authorities have registered a case in connection with the crime.

 

Tragically, this occurrence follows another recent incident where a 62-year-old man was allegedly murdered by robbers seeking money. The victim, Rajasekhar Reddy, had managed to earn an impressive sum of Rs 30 lakh by selling tomatoes in the first week of July. Rajasekhar, a resident of Madanapalle, cultivated tomatoes and sold them at the renowned tomato market, known as the largest tomato market in Asia.


 

Two shocking incidents of farmer deaths while guarding tomato crops in Andhra Pradesh highlight the need for enhanced security and support for farmers.

The farming community, already grappling with numerous challenges, now faces the added burden of safeguarding their livelihoods. Authorities must take immediate action to apprehend those responsible for these senseless acts and provide enhanced security measures to protect farmers and their valuable crops.
