EIGHT-DAY-OLD BABY stolen and killed by a gang of monkeys in India

A horrifying incident in Mela Alangam (West Rampart) near Thanjavur Palace in India saw twin baby girls, aged just eight days, snatched from their home on Saturday, February 14, while their mother was sleeping in the next room. Neighbours saw the primates carrying the infants across rooftops and rushed to rescue them. One bay girl was saved after being abandoned by the monkeys on the roof of a building, but the other infant sadly died after being dropped from a height into a water-filled ditch.

India Today reported: “Buvaneswari, the mother of newborn twin girls, alleged that monkeys entered her home and picked up the sleeping babies on Saturday.

“Buvaneswari further said she was shocked to see the monkeys on the roof and began yelling. It was only later that she realised that her children were missing.

“As she began to cry, neighbours came to help and reportedly retrieved one baby from the roof but couldn’t find the other one.

“Moments later, the other baby was found in a nearby water body. Medical team which reached the spot pronounced the child dead.”

Inspector S Chandramohan of Thanjavur West police told The Times of India that the primates had torn tiles off the roof of the house to get to the babies.
