Monkeys ‘stone’ 72-year-old to death in India

An elderly man in India has died after a troop of monkeys threw bricks at him from the top of a tree.

Guwahati ODI: West Indies on course for a fighting total
India dominated with the bat throughout the innings as Rohit remained unbeaten on 152 while Virat was dismissed for 140. It was also his 60th worldwide ton and in the process, became the fastest player to this milestone.

Singh's brother Krishnapal said the "monkeys threw more than 20 bricks at Dharampal" from height. Defending themselves against suggestions they've failed to act, local police lamented that it's not within their power to charge animals with a crime, nor can authorities do anything that might harm the protected animals. However, the police have given an entirely different narrative saying the man was sleeping near a pile of bricks which collapsed on him after the monkeys jumped over it. Terming the monkeys "the real culprits" he said: "We have given a written complaint against monkeys but police don't seem to be convinced enough to convert it into an FIR".

Police said monkeys rained bricks on the man from a treetop after collecting them from a nearby dilapidated building, the Times of India reported.
