Neighbours said frantic efforts to lure the monkey with edibles to release the baby did not bear fruits as the mischievous animal firmly clung on the newborn with its claws.
“Neighbours ran to help the mother screamed but it was adamant to release the baby. They tried to lure it and resorted to pelting it with stones all in vain. By the time the primate released the baby it had injured him badly,” said Agra Police Assistant Superintendent Abhishek.
According to the police, the monkey had bitten the baby on the face, neck and inflicted several other injuries with its claws.
The baby named Sunny was found in a terrace adjacent to his mother, Neha’s house and was pronounced dead on arrival to hospital.
Monkey attacks are common in India, with the primates get int the spotlight in recent weeks for stoning a 72-year-old man to death.
Delhi government authorities indicated they recorded 268 monkey bite cases in 2016.
