Marauding Monkey Caught In Delhi

A monkey which had attacked more than 25 people in an east Delhi locality over the weekend was caught on Tuesday morning, much to the relief of the frightened residents. "The marauding simian was caught from Shastri Park area with the help of a monkey-catcher.

It will be released in Asola area soon," an MCD spokesperson said in New Delhi. The monkey had gone on a rampage in the area on Saturday night attacking more than 25 people including children, creating terror among the residents. One of the victims is still battling for life in a hospital. The victims included many children.

Though baton-wielding residents kept a vigil in the area to catch the monkey, their efforts were wasted. It took two days for the municipal staff to catch the monkey.
