The Uttar Pradesh police have rescued an 8-year-old girl, who was reportedly living with a troop of monkeys in the Motipur range of Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary.
According to a Times Of India report, she cannot talk like a human being. The girl was spotted by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav when he was on a routine patrol about two months ago. When she was being rescued, the monkeys along with the girl screeched at him.
"The girl was found two months back, eats and walks like animals, and runs away on seeing humans," said D K Singh, the Chief Medical Officer at the district hospital where she is being treated.
"She has marks on her skin, looks like she has lived with animals for quite some time," he told ANI.
The ToI report notes that the girl still eats directly from her mouth.
