Monkey throws baby into well in Orissa

A 40-day-old baby was thrown into a well by a monkey in the Shantinagar area of the town in Orissa's Berhampore district, police said.

The fire brigade personnel arrived soon at the spot, but could only retrieve the body of the infant.

The baby girl, who was sleeping, was picked up by the primate in the absence of her mother on Wednesday.

As the shocked mother of the child raised an alarm after finding the monkey sitting near the well with the baby in its lap, the primate threw the baby into the well and disappeared, police said.
