A police officer from Mumbai’s Marine Drive police station said:

“Kadam told the police that after the drought this year, the state government had declared Rs 6,800 per hectare as drought relief to farmers, but Kadam claimed to have received only Rs 4,400 per hectare. Since he got less relief money, he visited the collector’s office at Nanded. The farmer further alleged that the ‘sahib’, however, sent him back insulted”.

Though the officer added that Kadam, in his statement made it clear that he had no personal complaint against anyone. They at present  have registered a case of accidental death in the matter.
