Monkey snatches handbag

A WOMAN leaving for home after offering prayers at the Batu Caves hilltop temple lost her handbag to a monkey, Tamil Nesan reported.

It quoted S. Prema, 24, as relating that she was climbing down the steps when the monkey grabbed her handbag and ran off.

Prema and her friends, who are from Johor, had decided to make a visit to the temple after completing their work in Kuala Lumpur.

She and her friends tried to coax the monkey into returning the handbag containing RM300, a gold chain, handphone and an ATM card by throwing bananas at it but it refused to release the bag and disappeared into the thick undergrowth.
