Jabalpur : In an unbelievable incident, a monkey snatched around Rs 1 lakh from a man in an autorickshaw stuck in traffic jam in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur. He then threw currency notes on the road as he tried to escape from the scene.

The incident happened on Sunday in a broad day light when a man was traveling in an auto rickshaw with the cash.

According to the owner, they could only retrieve around Rs 56,000 but the rest of the money went missing. With no CCTV installed in the area, it became impossible to find out who took the money.

“When the three came out of the vehicle to peer ahead and find out what was causing the traffic jam, a monkey took away a towel in which ₹1 lakh cash was wrapped. It shook the towel after climbing up a tree, spreading currency notes all around. The owner managed to collect ₹56,000, while the rest got lost,” explained Majholi police station in charge Sachin Singh, as quoted by PTI.

Meanwhile, the police has not registered a case of theft as no evidence could be found against anyone from the scene.

According to the police, locals in the area often provide food to the monkeys and that’s why the animals sometimes try to enter the vehicles hoping to find some food.
