Mowgli girl rescued from the jungles of UP - Eight-year-old behaves, acts like monkey

The Uttar Pradesh Police has found an eight-year-old girl in the jungles of Bahraich who can neither speak nor behave like normal human beings.

The girl was rescued from a troop of monkeys after she was spotted by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav during the routine patrol in Motipur range of Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary two months back.

When Yadav tried to rescue the girl, she as well as the monkeys screeched at him.

Notably, the girl was found to be comfortable in the company of the apes.

However, police finally rescued the girl after making a number of efforts and got her admitted to the district hospital.

Notably, the girl can neither speak nor understand any language and gets scared at the sight of human beings, reported The Times of India.

As per the doctors, who are treating her, the girl often gets violent. She eats directly from her mouth. She walks like animals using her hands and legs together.

The girl was found two months back, eats and walks like animals, and runs away on seeing humans, Chief Medical officer DK Singh told news agency ANI.

She has marks on her skin. It seems she has lived with animals for quite some time. But now she is better and healthy, added Singh.

In Rudyard Kipling's `The Jungle Book`, Mowgli, the man-cub, is said to be brought up in 'Seeonee hills' by a pack of wolves.
