Serious monkey-business!

MCD has a challenge!

NEW DELHI: Slamming the city's civic authorities for failure to tackle the simian menace plaguing the Tis Hazari courts complex, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday told the MCD: "If you cannot catch monkeys, then close down."

A Division Bench of Justice Vijender Jain and Justice Rekha Sharma gave the MCD four weeks' time to rid the complex of monkeys, in response to a PIL filed by a practising advocate, Nirmal Chopra.

The petitioner had complained that the monkeys attacked lawyers, their clients and court staff and even snatched eatables.

What is the 'MCD'? Is it the 'Municipal Corporation of Delhi' or the 'Monkey Catchers' Department'? Which monkeys are to be caught? ;)
