The monkey picked up a stone lying on the terrace that slipped from its hands and fell on the boy leaving him with serious injuries. The baby was rushed to a hospital but doctors declared him dead, police added.

Monkeys are a frequent menace in the country and have been known to attack children as young as two weeks old.

In May this year a monkey killed a 60-year-old man and injured nine others after going on the rampage through a town in central India.

The wild animal has been menacing residents of Badnawar in central India for the last nine days, according to local media.

One man, Nathuram, died of his injuries after apparently being bitten by the monkey.  A 15-year-old boy has also been wounded, the Times of India reported.
