The Monkey-man of Delhi was a monster which was reported roaming Delhi in mid-2001. In May 2001, reports began to circulate in the Indian capital New Delhi of a strange monkey-like creature that was appearing at night and attacking people.

Appearance[]

Eyewitness accounts were often inconsistent, but tended to describe the creature as about four feet (120 cm) tall, covered in thick black hair, with a metal helmet, metal claws, glowing red eyes and three buttons on its chest; others, however, described the Monkey-man as having a more vulpine snout, and being up to eight feet tall, and muscular; it would leap from building to building like a parkour enthusiast. Still others have described it as a bandaged figure or as a helmeted thing.

Possible Explanations[]

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • Extraterrestrial
  • Man/primate hybrid
  • Mass hysteria

Notable Encounters[]

There are no notable accounts that we could find.

Trivia[]

  • Many people reported being scratched, and two (by some reports, three) people even died when they leapt from the tops of buildings or fell down stairwells in a panic caused by what they thought was the attacker. At one point, exasperated police even issued artist's impression drawings in an attempt to catch the creature.
