Many residential enclaves of the National Capital Region continue to be in the grip of fear of the so-called monkey man.

And with each passing day, the unidentified salesman of tenor has increased its area of operation. The apparition ha’s, over the last fortnight, barged into the homes of sleeping people, mauled some of them with its metallic claws and made good its escape under the cover of darkness. Indeed, widespread power failures in these parts have greatly helped the mysterious attacker. More than 20 fresh cases have been reported since Monday night alone, many of the victims displaying to the police tell-tale gashes and abrasions caused by the intruder. But most of the injured persons were victims of stampedes sparked by mere rumours that the monkey man had been sighted.
