Monkey sneaks inside CWG Village

Even though Delhi administration has decided to deploy langurs to avoid monkey menace during the Commonwealth Games, a long-tailed primate on Thursday sneaked inside the Athletes' Village in New Delhi.

The incident took place in the afternoon when a monkey managed to get into the Village premises and was witnessed roaming about in the pathways.

However, as soon as the monkey was spotted inside the Village the officials rushed into action and got the animal out of the area.

The Delhi administration has deployed langurs at Games venues to scare off common bonnet monkeys, which have been known to attack humans.

More than 10 trained langurs were brought to the CWG Organising Committee headquarters earlier this week and then have been deployed in various venues.

Langurs are known for their ferocious attitude to scare away other monkeys.
