Sky News:- A man in India has died after a group of monkeys threw bricks at him from a tree.

Dharampal Singh, 72, had been collecting pieces of dry wood before the incident in Tikri, Uttar Pradesh, on Thursday.

Police said monkeys rained bricks on the man from a treetop after collecting them from a nearby dilapidated building, the Times of India reported.

The elderly man later died in hospital from sustained head and chest injuries.

Villagers have repeatedly complained about aggressive monkeys in the area, but the animals are a protected species.

Mr Singh’s family are said to have put in a formal complaint about the incident to police.

The victim’s brother reportedly told the newspaper: “Monkeys threw more than 20 bricks at Dharampal on Thursday.”

He was hit on the head, chest and legs. Thrown from a height, the bricks were enough to kill him.

The brother added: “These rogue monkeys are the real culprits and must pay for it.”

Chitwan Singh, the station officer at Doghat police station, said: “How can we register the case against monkeys? This will make us a laughing stock.”

Deadly monkey attacks have been on the rise in India, with wildlife experts saying that rhesus macaques are usually to blame.

It is unclear which breed attacked Mr Singh.

  1. You just have to shoot a selected group of monkeys,what you would call the leaders of the pack,once those are dead,the pack becomes normal again.Monkey meat makes great stews,and barbecue also,with plenty of sauce

  2. PJ, It’s spelled “ignoramus”, “ignoramini” does not exist. You showed your knowledge of Indian culture but your lack of language quality for the purpose of being disagreeable.
