At around  9 pm on Thursday   the   monkeys were found battling for life on the road side of Agumbe Ghat. Though  a group of local youth tried to rescue the monkeys by providing them water it was of no avail.

The suspicion is that someone had poisoned the monkeys which used to trespass into inhabited areas and then dumped them in the Ghat area.
