'Girl Mowgli' was abondoned by parents due to mental issues
Girl Mowgli now known as Forest Durga may have not been raised by monkeys after all. The 8 year old girl was rescued from the Katarniyaghat wildlife sanctuary by a forest guard with wounds on her body.
On arrival at hospital, she walked on all fours and even made screeching noises like a monkey. After stories of her being raised by monkey circulated, now many treating on her say that it is not possible. It is not possible that she was raised by monkeys all these years and none in the forest department spotted her.
The doctors treating on her feel that she may have behaved like a monkey. It is normal for 8 year old children to do that. It is not possible that the forest staff who are in large numbers or the 100s of cameras installed in the forest area may not have spotted the girl.
Preliminary investigations conducted suggest that the girl may have been abandoned by her parents since she had mental issues. She was not stable when she was brought to the hospital. It appears that she had mental issues. The theory of she being raised by monkey does not add up and sounds absurd some of the police officials who are trying to find her parents say.
The girl meanwhile in hospital is still coping with her new situation. She hides under the bed to avoid visitors. She is in an isolation ward and eats fruits and biscuits. She has been in hospital for two months now. She makes a sound when she is hungry and when she is thirsty, she throws a glass on the floor, her matron M Bhalla says.
