  • The child, who reportedly screeches to communicate and walks on all fours was found by police in a remote nature reserve in Bahraich northern India

In a tale reminiscent of the Jungle Book, police in northern India have rescued a young girl believed to have been living for several years among wild monkeys.

The girl was rescued by a police officer in the Katarniya Ghat forest area.

"They said the girl was naked and seemed quite comfortable in the company of the simians".

The girl was spotted by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav when he was on a routine patrol about two months ago.

The girl does not use her hands while eating she directly eat from her mouth and is being taught to walk on her legs but at times she walks with her hands and legs, like the way animals do.

Police say when they found the girl in the nature reserve, she appeared at home with the monkeys.

Police took her to hospital as soon as they found her and doctors have been tending to her since then. "The treatment is proving to be a hard task for the doctors as she does not understand anything and makes noises and faces like monkeys, and attacks the doctors when they approach her", revealed a junior doctor.

". Our priority now is to give her proper medical care and look for her parents", the ASP said.

Medical reports have shown signs of markings along the girl's arms suggesting she may have been living in the forest for a long time.

The girl, who has been dubbed Mowgli 2.0, was found living with a troop of monkeys in Bahraich, India. Authorities were eventually able to convince her to come with them, and she has been recuperating in a local hospital ever since. She is scared of humans and often gets violent.

"As she sees anyone looking at her even from a distance, she starts growling", says Shiraz, who is one among those visiting the odd patient in the district hospital regularly. Now, her condition has improved and she is better and healthy, added the CMO.
