'Abandoned UP Girl Raised by Monkeys' Not True, No Jungle Book Story

'Abandoned UP Girl Raised by Monkeys' Not True, No Jungle Book Story

A report in The Indian Express quotes police and forest officials as saying that the girl was found on a roadside in Bahriach and that she was mentally retarded.

The girl, according to those reports, was rescued earlier this year by police who found her surrounded by a pack of protective monkeys in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

Rumours of the discovery of a "Mowgli girl" doing the rounds are baseless, says cop who rescued the 11-year-old girl two and a half months ago from the jungles of Katerniaghat.

Ankur Lal, the chief medical officer for Bahraich district, said the nature of the child's disability was "still under investigation", but it was unlikely she had been raised in the forest.

This is how the story of the Mowgli girl found in a forest at Uttar Pradesh has turned out.

Police rescued the girl from a remote forest in January. "They would rather get rid of the girl than spend money on her".

"It is clear from first time view. her facial expressions show that she is disabled, not only mentally but also physically", he said. "She had injuries on her body, had long hair, was without clothes and had overgrown nails", said Pratima Singh, member of the District Child Protection Unit, Bahraich.

Suh was also issued a refund, as well as money for a hotel for the nights the group was supposed to stay with Racist Tami. In line with our non-discrimination policy, this host has been permanently removed from the Airbnb platform".

"The truth of the matter is her family didn't want to look after her", said Ranjana Kumari, a leading activist in the movement to promote the welfare of young girls in a society where female foeticide persists, and has severely distorted birth rates, especially in rural areas. One police officer speculated that she might have been raised by primates from infancy. On January 25, she was admitted to the district hospital, Bahraich, for treatment on the directions of the magistrate of "baal suraksha grih". "So all the more (evidence) she was left there". "She even bit off the blanket given to her at the hospital and pick up things from garbage in the hospital compound and eat".

"She was falsely dubbed as a girl reared by monkeys. There are over a 100 leopards in the sanctuary, and she could not have escaped them". "We cannot say whether she is mentally retarded or not as she is reacting to her surroundings", said.

She used to eat polythene.

"That is why we believe she was abandoned".

"She seemed disabled. She could not speak coherently".

"Some families value girls less than boys", she said.
