The cops managed to pick up the girl and put her into the vehicle and brought her to the primary health centre. She was found with a troop of monkeys by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav when he was on patrolling in the Motipur range of the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary close to the border with Nepal. "As we tried to go near the girl, the monkeys surrounded her and some of them pounced on us".
She reportedly screeches to communicate and walks using all four limbs - just like the monkeys she lived with.
However, he says that the girl, who has been in the hospital for over two months now, is showing definite improvement in her medical condition. "She was wearing clothes but not very dirty", Inspector Ram Avtar told Cover Asia Press, adding that the girl appeared to be abandoned by her family.
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". "She refuses to eat in a plate and spreads the food on the bed or the floor before she eats it", said Dr D.K. Singh, CMS in the district hospital. "Her nails and hair were unkempt like monkeys", said superintendent of police (City) Dinesh Tripathi.
According to the first information, the girl can not speak any language nor behave like a human being. It seems she is unable to understand local dialect, and often gets violent when treated.
The ToI report notes that the girl still eats directly from her mouth. Despite improving slowly, Singh is confident that she will recover soon.
