Floods and vandal nets farmer a rough day

As if flooding wasn’t enough, a Kandal farmer discovered his rice field was further damaged by a fishing net strung up without his blessing on Sunday.

Police said that after he found the net, the fisherman who put it there showed up to defend himself. Unhappy with being harangued over the net, the fisherman produced an axe and attacked the farmer before escaping in his boat.

Badly wounded, the farmer tried to drive his own boat home but fell unconscious and was taken to hospital. The suspect is at large. NOKORWAT
