Incidents of attacks by macaques - a species with reddish-pink faces common across India - are frequent in the city.

The baby died of his injuries at a local hospital.

Agra, Mathura and Vrindavan were worst affected by monkeys who frequently attack tourists and pilgrims.

The incident comes amid a spate of monkey attacks, including the deaths of two newborn babies snatched from their parents.

Dharampal Singh, 72, was collecting firewood in Baghpat - about 250km north of Agra in the Uttar Pradesh region - when the monkeys began throwing bricks from a dilapidated building at him.

A 12-day-old baby in India was snatched from his mother's arms and killed by a monkey in search of food, the latest attack in what's becoming an increasing primate problem in certain areas of the country.

The baby's grandmother Pushpa Devi told the station the family would "never recover" from the sudden, shocking loss.

"Monkeys are everywhere in Agra", local environmental activist Shravan Kumar Singh told Reuters, adding that the animals have become more aggressive after being displaced from their natural habitats.

"They are in all the five railway stations in the city, in hospitals, hotels and roads".

In 2018, the Indian government said it had approved a pilot project for immune-contraception to control the population of wild animals including monkeys in the city.

They also passed a resolution at the meeting, demanding adequate compensation to victims of monkey attacks.
