In a shocking case reported from Meerut, a bunch of monkeys stoned a 72-year-old man to death. The incident happened in Tikri Village of Bhagpat, Uttar Pradesh. According to sources, the man identified as Dharampal was asleep near a pile of bricks when some monkeys jumped on the bricks. The pile of bricks collapsed and fell on Dharampal, leaving him injured.
He was taken to hospital where he succumbed. The deceased’s brother, however, in his complaint has said that Dharampal was collecting woods when he was attacked by the monkeys. The monkeys threw bricks at his head and chest because of which he was seriously injured and later died in the hospital.
The family now wants the police to file an FIR against the monkeys for killing Dharampal. “We have submitted a written complaint against the monkeys, but the police are terming it as an accident,” Dharampal’s brother said. He added the family will meet senior officials and request them to initiate action in this regard.
