A TROOP of killer monkeys horrifically threw a four-month-old baby to his death after snatching him from his mother.
Dad Nirdesh Upadhyay, 25, had been on his three-story roof terrace with his wife and son when the animals took the tot.
The family had been unwinding on Friday at their home in Bareilly, India, when a gang of monkeys moved onto the roof.
Despite their best efforts to drive them away, the animals surrounded the terrified trio and continued to taunt them.
Nirdesh made a desperate bid for freedom and ran towards the stairs with his four-month-old son, but he slipped through his hands.
The dad then immediately tried to scoop his newborn baby back into the safety of his arms as his mother watched on in horror.
But one of the monkeys beat them to it – and mercilessly launched the tot from the three-story roof.
The little boy tragically died instantly, according to reports.
The chilling case shocked parents around the world, as despite appearing to be adorable, the creatures are known to harass, beat, rob and even kidnap humans in broad daylight.
We previously told how another baby boy was killed by a troop of monkeys who tore him from his mum as she breastfed him.
Shayima Said began screaming in terror as the monkeys made off with little Luhaiba in Mwamgongo village in Tanzania.
The youngster was tracked down by villagers who tried to free him before the tot sadly succumbed to his injuries.
And earlier this year, horror footage emerged showing the moment a toddler was snatched by a monkey and dragged away by her hair as she played outside on her scooter.
The unknowing young tot was left with scratches across her face after she was rescued from the vicious attack in China’s Chongqing Municipality.
Dramatic video shows the girl being thrown to the ground by the primate before a brave bystander rescued her from its clutches.
And last year, The Sun revealed the devastating aftermath of a horrific monkey attack that left a two-month-year-old baby mutilated.
The predator attacked when the baby was in the living room while his mother was in the kitchen.
