Chased By Monkeys, Woman Falls To Death

A 45-year-old woman fell to her death from the first floor of her house allegedly after being chased by monkeys in Rawatpur on Sunday morning around 8am. The victim has been identified as Usha Devi, wife of Mewalal Yadav.

One moment she was doing household chores, the next she was lying in a pool of blood, said neighbours. She was rushed to hospital where doctors declared her 'brought dead on arrival'.

Her death left the locals shocked, who demanded for a check on the monkey menace. They said similar incidents (monkey bites) had taken place earlier as well and had been reported to authorities concerned, but to no avail.

"This is something which is unbelievable. Monkeys have taken the life of my wife. The doctors said she had died of excessive bleeding and multiple fractures," claimed Mewalal Yadav, deceased's husband.

"The authorities should launch a drive to nab these monkeys that chase people and bite them. They come to our house everyday and, if nothing is offered to them, they start annoyed," claimed a local.
