The monkey menace has taken dangerous proportions in many parts of Delhi, including the Lutyens Zone. The Lok Sabha Secretariat has issued an advisory for all MPs ahead of the winter session beginning December 11, advising them on the ways to escape any possible attacks by monkeys.
As per the advisory, the MPs have been advised not to run in case they spot a monkey in front of them, nor should they make an attempt to hit the animal in any possible way.
They have been further advised to not carry any edible materials with them and to not feed the monkeys. The MPs should silently walk past the animal upon an encounter, the advisory said.
