"Durga the Jungle", a girl who "lived with the monkeys" in a forest in northern Uttar Pradesh state

An eight-to-eight-year-old girl has been found in a forest in northern India's Uttar Pradesh state for weeks, unable to communicate and acting "monkey-like".

A senior Indian police officer told the BBC that she was playing with a group of monkeys, acting like them when the police rescued her, and the monkeys attacked the troops when she arrived to rescue the girl.

The girl was in the Katarnigat Wildlife Reserve near the Indian border with Nepal.

The child was malnourished, her hair and nails were long, her body was bruised.

The child was not able to speak, but she was shouting and walking on her hands and feet.

However, her condition has improved greatly now, but in the long term she will be placed in a childcare institution and specialized doctors who are gradually teaching her life.

The local magistrate visited the girl at the hospital and called her the nickname "Durga Jungle", in reference to the Durga the Supreme Gods at Hindus.

Many in India compare this girl to the "mugley" character, who was raised with the wolves, in Rudyard Kipling's "The Book of the Jungle."

It was not known how long the girl spent with the monkeys in the forest.
