Uttar Pradesh: Man stoned to death by monkeys, family wants police to file an FIR

The Uttar Pradesh police are said to be in a dilemma as a bizarre case emerged where the family of a 70-year-old man who was allegedly stoned to death by monkeys have asked the police to file an FIR against the latter.

The incident took place on October 17 in Tikri village of the district. According to the circle police officer Ramala Rajiv Pratap Singh, the deceased was sleeping near a pile of bricks when some monkeys jumped on the bricks. The pile of bricks collapsed and fell on Dharampal, leaving him injured. He was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

However, the deceased’s brother, Krishnapal Singh, had a different story to tell. In his complaint, he said that Dharampal was collecting woods for a havan (ritual wherein offerings are made into a consecrated fire) when he was attacked by the monkeys. Bricks were thrown at his head and chest, and he succumbed to injuries at the hospital.

Dharampal’s brother said that though a written complaint had been filed, the police were terming the incident as an ‘accidental death’. Angered by this the family claimed that they would meet the senior officials and request them to initiate an action in regard to the same.

Terming the family’s demand as illogical, the police have said filing of an FIR against the monkeys will make them an object of ridicule. The police have, however, sent Singh’s body for postmortem.
