In a bizarre incident straight from a Bollywood flick, a monkey was seen fleeing from a jewellery store in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh with a bundle of cash worth Rs. 10,000.
In a video that has gone viral, the seemingly innocent monkey entered the store in the pretext of entering a fruit, following which hysteria unfolded when the nefarious intentions of the animal came to light.
“The monkey threw a guava inside the shop and then entered the jewellery store and fled away with the cash. We threw the fruit back but it entered the shop anyway. It first attacked the worker but he escaped. It sat for almost 20 minutes in the store and then it opened the drawer in the cash counter and took away Rs. 10,000 cash,” said the shop owner.
In a CCTV footage from the shop, a monkey was seen entering the shop and ‘looking around’ for things.
However, it was seen opening one of the drawers which happened to be the cash drawer and randomly picked up a bundle of Rs. 10,000.
The shopkeeper tried to chase the monkey but it approached the cash drawer and fled away with the money.
The staffs present at the shop were shocked to see the incident.
