A gang was arrested in New Delhi, India after imparting training to rob monkeys in the capital Delhi. According to the publication Daily star, Animals were taught to steal food, money and valuables.
Local police also reported last month that three men and a monkey stole 6,000 rupees, about 477 nobles from a lawyer while traveling in a rickshaw – a two-wheeled carriage pulled by a man.
“When the victim was sitting comfortably, the men surprised him and ordered the monkey to sit in the front seat and one on the back. They took the money that the lawyer had kept in his wallet and ran away with the monkeys,” The police described. .
The corporation has called a task force to nab the culprits. Two suspects were arrested while studying the next victim at a bus stop. The monkeys were with him at the time and were sent to an animal rescue center.
According to the publication, police are still searching for a third suspect.
Indian monkeys have become increasingly aggressive in recent years and even more adventurous during their imprisonment, with fewer people roaming the streets. In a recent case, one of these animals entered a bank and destroyed an ATM. Bank officials initially suspected the thieves, however, and noticed that they were monkeys after examining footage from surveillance cameras.
