Girl found living with monkeys in Indian forest

Girl found living with monkeys in Indian forest

The Uttar Pradesh Police has found an eight-year-old girl in the jungles of Bahraich who can neither speak nor behave like normal human beings.

It isn't clear how long the girl was living in the wild, or how she ended up there.

It adds that she and the monkeys responded to sub-inspector Suresh Yadav's initial attempts to rescue her by screeching. She also eats like a monkey, using her hands to collect and eat the food.

The girl, believed to be aged between 10 and 12, was naked and looked very comfortable roaming with the primates when she was discovered by tree surgeons in the Katarniya Ghat forest range.

Her story has similarities with Rudyard Kipling's tale about a boy called Mowgli who was brought up by wolves. "She behaves like an ape and screams loudly if doctors try to reach out to her", said Dr DK Singh, chief medical superintendent, Bahraich District Hospital, adding that her behaviour is making her treatment hard.

Indian Wells champion Federer will take break to prepare for French Open
Meanwhile, Sania Mirza and her Czech team-mate Barbora Strycova lost in the Women's Doubles final of Miami Open tennis tournament. By beating Rafael Nadal in the 2017 Miami Open title, Federer moved ahead in the hard court head-to-head to 10-9 lead overall.

She screams when humans go near her due to which giving a proper treatment has become hard, Chief Medical Officer DK Singh told the media.

The girl was seen amongst the animals of the forest and was completely unfamiliar with human language.

The officer said: "When rescued she had unkempt nails and hair and there were wounds all over her body".

An officer eventually managed to rescue the child by speeding away from the monkeys in a jeep as they gave chase, Tripathi said. It seems she is unable to understand local dialect, and often gets violent when treated. "Now she is better and healthy, showing improvement". She eats directly from her mouth.
