Monkeys are a frequent threat in the country and are known to attack children from two weeks of age.

In May of this year, a monkey killed a 60-year-old man and injured nine others after going through a city in central India.

Last October a 12-day-old Indian boy was snatched from his mother and killed by a monkey on the outskirts of Agra.

A few months earlier, a group of monkeys had attacked two foreign tourists in the famous Taj Mahal in India.

It is known that monkeys look for food around the entrance to the monument, where visitors' bags are scanned and food is sometimes thrown away.

Earlier this year, the police began using catapults to target the monkeys, hoping that they would only be deterred by seeing them.
