Police said his injuries indicate he was bitten on the face.

A 12-day-old baby from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, in India, was killed by a monkey after being snatched from the arms of his breastfeeding mother inside their home.

"Suddenly a monkey barged inside our house and grabbed the child by the neck".

According to the Agra Municipal Corporation officials, the number of monkeys in the city has gone up beyond 25,000. He added monkey attacks in the area are growing more frequent. "We live in fear".

Reuters reports the incident took place in the town of Runkata on the outskirts of Agra south of New Delhi - home of the Taj Mahal.

A toddler who was attacked by monkeys two months ago is still recovering in a hospital, the BBC reported.

In May, two tourists were attacked at the Taj Mahal.

Environmental activist Shravan Kumar said monkeys are turning more aggressive as their natural habitats have been destroyed and forest cover is gradually vanishing and they go in search of food and shelter. "They are in all the five railway stations in the city, in hospitals, hotels and roads".

"They threw stones at the monkey to force it to drop the baby but by the time he abandoned it, he had already attacked him severely on the face", Abhishek told CNN.

Some local organizations are calling for authorities to compensate monkey attack victims, for the animals to be sterilized and for their exclusion from legislation protecting wildlife, Singh said.
