Kanpur, July 21: In a bizarre incident, three people including a kid were severely injured after a group of monkeys dropped crude bombs on them from a tree in Uttar Pradesh's Fatehpur. According to a report by TOI, the monkeys dropped a polythene bag containing 'sutli' (crude) bombs in Manu Ka Purwa locality on Thursday. The report further informs that the bag contained bombs that explode after hitting any object.
Three people and the child, who suffered severe injuries, were rushed to a nearby hospital. The report informs that they were being treated for burns and splinter injuries. According to a TOI report, Gulab Gupta and his 5-year-old grandson Samrat were hit by the bombs while they waited for the child's school bus outside their house.
Reports further inform that when the monkeys dropped the bag on them, the bombs exploded with a deafening sound. The grandfather and his grandson along with a passerby were critically injured. The incident came to light after locals informed the police about the incident.
As per details by SHO Kotwali Suresh Chandra Omhare, the monkeys had probably picked up the bag containing crude bombs from a garbage dump and were playing on the terrace of a house when they suddenly dropped it on the victims.
