Girl found living with monkeys in Indian forest

An eight-year-old girl was found in the company of a troop of monkeys at the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary in Bahraich in Uttar Pradesh.

The officer eventually managed to rescue her and she was admitted to hospital in Bahraich, a town in Uttar Pradesh state in northern India. The girl was also naked.

Sub-inspector Suresh Yadav spotted the girl two months ago during a routine patrol in the sanctuary's Motiput range.

Talking about her habit, Dr. Singh added, "Sometimes she walks on feet and suddenly comes down on all four", Even while eating, the girl spreads the eatables on bed and doesn't use hands to put them in her mouth. However, she was rescued and taken to a district hospital.

Surrounded by monkeys, the girl screeched at the officers when they approached, before trying to flee on all fours.

The girl is reported to have odd marks on her skin and seems to have been living with animals for quite some time.

"She behaves like an ape and screams loudly if doctors try to reach out to her", says Dr DK Singh, chief medical superintendent, Bahraich District Hospital adding that her behaviour is making her treatment hard.

A child found living with monkeys in a forest in India has been dubbed "Mowgli girl" after the character in the Jungle Book. After she leaves the hospital, she will be sent to a home for juveniles until she is officially identified. She screams when humans go near her due to which giving a proper treatment has become hard, Chief Medical Officer DK Singh told the media. She is scared of humans and often gets violent.

But according to Dr Lal she was now consuming vast quantities of food and was in "much better physical shape".
