Monkeys allegedly stone man to death in India

A 70-year-old

 was

allegedly

stoned to

death by some

monkeys in a

village here,

putting the

police in a fix

as the

deceased’s

family wants

an FIR to be

registered against them. 

The incident

took place on October 17 in Tikri village

of the district.

Circle officer Ramala Rajiv Pratap Singh

told PTI that the deceased was sleeping

near a pile of bricks when some monkeys

jumped on the bricks. The pile of bricks

collapsed and fell on Dharampal, leaving

him injured. He was taken to hospital

where he succumbed.

Giving a different narrative, Krishnapal

Singh, the brother of the deceased, in his

complaint has said that Dharampal was

collecting woods for a havan when he

was attacked by the monkeys. Bricks

were thrown at his head and chest, and

he succumbed to injuries at the hospital.

“We have submitted a written complaint

against the monkeys, but the police is

terming it as an accident,” he said.

He said they will now meet senior

officials and request them to initiate

action in this regard.
