A special squad of monkey police has been armed with catapults that will form a ring of steel around US President Donald Trump when he visits the Taj Mahal next week.
The 17th-century monument is home to about 600 monkeys and has several stories of terrorizing tourists.
The fearless monkeys are usually famous for grabbing food and also have scratched and even bitten some cases.
In one case, a small baby was killed by a monkey.
A local resident said: ” The terror of monkeys is so pervasive that women and children are scared of going up on the roof of their houses.”
Brij Bhushan, head of Taj Mahal security told, “The monkey get frightened by just seeing us brandishing slingshots and run away.”
However, one officer of India’s Central Industrial Security Force said,” While this catapult is effective against single or a single or couple of monkeys when it comes to whole troops of monkeys, the catapult is completely ineffective.”
Several steps have been taken into consideration to protect Trump and his wife from the minacious monkeys of the Taj Mahal.
The Uttar Pradesh government has announced the visit of President Trump and The First Lady will be on Monday evening.
