Girl found living with monkeys in Indian forest

Police in northern India are reviewing reports of missing children after rescuing a young girl who was found living in a forest with several monkeys.

The girl, who was spotted in Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, was eventually safely captured has been admitted to a district hospital.

The girl, believed to be aged between 10 and 12, was naked and looked very comfortable roaming with the primates when she was discovered by tree surgeons in the Katarniya Ghat forest range.

The case is similiar to "The Jungle Book", written by Rudyard Kipling, in which the main character "Mowgli" is raised as a man-cub by a pack of wolves in the "Seeonee hills". In addition, she does not seem to understand human language. Chief Medical Superintendent D.K. Singh said this was hindering proper treatment.

"She was terrified of us, she could not speak or hear us properly", said Inspector Ram Avtar Singh, from Motipur station in Bahraich, in a statement. "He sped away with her in his police auto while the monkeys gave chase". "Now she is better and healthy, showing improvement", he added.

"We have asked that she be placed in the juvenile court, from where she can get some future direction and be re-integrated into the society".

The doctors treating the girl said that she often gets violent. Even while eating, the girl spreads the eatables on bed and doesn't use hands to put them in her mouth.

Doctors said she acts violently sometimes and for some reason, she also refuses to eat from a plate and will only eat directly off her bedsheets.
