Girl found living with monkeys in Indian forest

07 April 2017

Police in northern India have rescued a young girl who is believed to have been living with monkeys in the jungle for a number of years.

The girl had been seen amongst animals of the forest and was completely alien to any human language.

The girl was rescued by a police officer in the Katarniya Ghat forest area.

She was surrounded by monkeys and when he tried to take her along with him, they started attacking him.

She walks with the use of her arms along with legs and screeches as same as monkeys to communicate.

"The girl was found two months back, eats and walks like animals, and runs away on seeing humans".

She said the Bulldogs brought plenty of pressure against UConn - similar to what FSU did earlier in the season. During the first quarter, Mississippi State tallied 8 offensive rebounds that led to 10-second chance points.

Authorities say they don't know who she is or where she came from, and since the girl doesn't speak or write, authorities haven't been able to learn anything about her identity. Police said they encountered fierce resistance from the monkeys when they eventually managed to trap the girl.

The girl was discovered by accident when Sub-inspector Suresh Yadav found her while he was on a routine patrol. "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.

She will be sent to a home for juveniles until she is identified, Singh said.

Doctors told the Times she is often violent and is scared by the presence of other humans. Meanwhile, Singh added that she has shown signs of improvement and is in a better condition now.

Indian officials hope that media attention may lead to someone knowing the girl or her family stepping forward.
