Panic-Hit City Hunts ‘Ape-Like’ Attacker!
‘Monkey Man’ Hysteria Grips New Delhi Suburbs!

New Delhi (Reuters) – Fear gripped some suburbs of the Indian capital on Tuesday after dozens of residents reported attacks by an ape-like creature able to leap from roof to roof.
Media reports said that the collective hysteria claimed a second life early on Tuesday after a pregnant woman sleeping on her terrace was woken by neighbors shouting, “The monkey has come!” The woman fell down a staircase and died in hospital. Two nights earlier, an industrial worker died in similar circumstances when he leapt in terror from a building at Noida, a southeastern suburb.
There are a number of monkeys running wild in New Delhi and on the outskirts of the city which sometimes pounce on unsuspecting pedestrians or enter houses.
