A 13-year-old girl has died after being chased off a roof by a tribe of rampaging monkeys in India.

The teenager fell to her death in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, earlier today, police have said.

She had gone on to the roof to collect laundry that had been left out to dry before being chased by the fierce primates.

She was rushed to hospital but doctors declared her dead on arrival.

Laxman Tulisiani, a gold dealer and owner of the house, and a labourer named only as Veera, were killed in the city of Agra.

Police said the pair were inspecting the dilapidated property which was under construction and was due to have a wall on the third flood removed.

Tulisiani and Veera was standing underneath the wall on the second floor of the property, when a mass brawl suddenly broke out between 35 monkeys.

The fighting primates knocked into the wall, causing it to collapse and fall 10ft on to the men below, Indian news agency IANS reported.

Rescuers managed to pull the pair from the rubble and they were taken to a nearby medical centre, but both were pronounced dead from head injuries.

Two other recent fatal attacks claimed the lives of a 12-day-old baby and a 58-year-old woman.

The first saw a troop of monkeys break into a woman’s home while she was breastfeeding her child in the Kachhara area before snatching the baby away from her.

Locals chased the monkey which was carrying the infant and tried to tempt it with food but it bit the child as people approached and fled.

The baby was rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

In the second attack, a 58-year-old woman was bitten by monkeys as she went to relieve herself outside her home on the outskirts of the city at night.

She was set upon by a group of monkeys who left her ‘bleeding profusely’ through a series of bite wounds.

She was taken to hospital but later died from her injuries.
