A monkey snatched a 12-day-old baby from his mother and ran away. The infant was later found lying bruised and bitten on the terrace of a neighbour’s house in Mohalla Kachhera area in Agra.
The baby was rushed to a hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead.
According to the family, Sunny’s mother was feeding him on Monday evening. Sunny’s family members chased the monkey and later found the baby on a neighbour’s terrace.
The family took him to another hospital, but the hospital confirmed that the child had died.
A news report quoted local residents as saying that they had stopped going to their terraces to sit in the sun. “Those who do, have sealed their homes with iron mesh cages,” a resident of Vijay Nagar colony Seema Gupta said.
Residents said monkeys snatch belongings and attack people, particularly women and children in Agra.
