Monkey kills man with a BRICK: Rampaging primate hurls stone from upper floor of a house in India fatally striking 30-year-old on the head
A man has been killed in India after a monkey threw a brick at him from the second floor of a building.
Local police confirmed that 30-year-old Mohammad Kurbaan was killed after being hit in the head with the falling brick in Central Delhi’s Nabi Karim area.
Kurbaan, who sold bags from a shop in the area, collapsed after being hit with the brick and was taken to hospital, where doctors pronounced his dead.
A First Information Report (FIR) was handed to an unknown individual by police under sections of causing death by negligence, the Indian Express reports.
While investigating, police discovered that the owner of the building the bricks were thrown from had left two bricks above a water tank to prevent monkeys from opening it.
Police said that a group of monkeys had managed to remove both of the bricks, throwing one at Kurbaan and hurling another onto a nearby terrace.
The incident, earlier this month, comes after the wife of a leader of a major political party in India has fallen to her death while trying to escape a monkey attack.
Sushma Devi, 50, was rushed to hospital but sadly died of her injuries.
She is the wife of Anil Kumar Chauhan, leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Evolution of using tools in action. Very sad for this man and his loved ones. These monkeys have lost fear of man, they behave badly when the food they depend on from people, is limited. Biting, stealing and throwing things are common incidents, stemming from frustration and reliance for food.

These monkeys are a bit vicious. They look like the ones I saw in Gibralter this Summer, One jumped on my head and it felt like I was wrestling with a teddy bear. Another one stole a mans rucksack and ran up a tree, He lost his keys, passport and money.
