GUNTUR: In a bizarre incident straight from a Bollywood flick, a monkey was seen fleeing from a jewellery store in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh with a bundle of cash worth Rs. 10,000.

In a video that has gone viral, the seemingly innocent monkey entered the store in the pretext of entering a fruit, following which hysteria unfolded when the nefarious intentions of the animal came to light.

“The monkey threw a guava inside the shop and then entered the jewellery store and fled away with the cash. We threw the fruit back but it entered the shop anyway. It first attacked the worker but he escaped. It sat for almost 20 minutes in the store and then it opened the drawer in the cash counter and took away Rs. 10,000 cash,” said the shop owner.

In a CCTV footage from the shop, a monkey was seen entering the shop and ‘looking around’ for things.

However, it was seen opening one of the drawers which happened to be the cash drawer and randomly picked up a bundle of Rs. 10,000.

The shopkeeper tried to chase the monkey but it approached the cash drawer and fled away with the money.

The staffs present at the shop were shocked to see the incident.

There have been earlier incidents of such ‘thefts’ in which monkeys were reportedly involved in ‘stealing’ money from people in markets and temples.

A temple in Vrindavan had money falling from the skies. It was no miracle though, it was discovered that a monkey had grabbed a devotee’s purse and was ‘raining’ money.

Reportedly, in another incident, a resident of Borivali in Mumbai had just finished offering prayers at the Banke Bihari temple when a simian snatched her purse.

It then sat and managed to unbundle a few notes, which it then flung in the air.
