The dead have led to renewed calls to resolve the monkey's threat in the state.
Goyal was sitting outside his house talking to neighbors when he was attacked on August 7.
Anurag Agarwal, a family member, told the Hindustan Times: & # 39; Simian threat is a routine matter in this area.
& # 39; These monkeys run on the walls of derelict houses and lead to bricks falling to the ground. We have to keep our children indoors because of the fear.
& # 39; For fear, no teacher comes to teach our children and none of our family members visit us because of monkeys in the areas of Phulatti, Kuncha Sadhuram and Maithan. All our complaints, including the complaints, have fallen into the ears of Agra's administration. & # 39;
Lawyers in the city recently went on a two-day strike to encourage officials to tackle the monkey problem.

The second victim, Kusum Chaturvedi, was taken to the hospital after her fall on July 31, but was declared dead shortly thereafter.
Her cousin told it Times of India that & # 39; no one is worried about the deaths of poor people & # 39 ;.
She said: & # 39; No one worries about the deaths of poor people. When someone from the family of a politician or a bureaucrat is murdered, they wake up from sleep and do something. & # 39;
