Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Forest Department must come up with a scheme to ensure monkeys are shifted back to their natural habitat from residential areas, without them being hurt, directed the Karnataka High Court.

The High Court was hearing public interest litigation (PIL) filed by advocate B S Radhanandan from Chamarajpet in Bengaluru.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj stated, “Keeping in mind the duty of the state, safety of humans and welfare of animals, while protecting citizens from the monkey menace, the State Government should ensure that the monkeys are not hurt in any manner and shift them to their natural habitat.”

Further, the High Court also directed the state government to file a statement, and the plan evolved to deal with the issue by July 12.
