Hyderabad: At least 30 monkeys were found dead in a water tanker in Nandikonda municipality, Nalgonda district of Telangana on Wednesday.

The monkeys may have entered the tanker for water and were trapped inside the tanker and drowned after entering through metal sheets placed on the tank. Officials are accused of not closing the tanker properly, leading to the incident.

The tanker was being used to supply drinking water to at least 200 families in Hill Colony.

Residents of the area expressed worry about the impact of it on their health after consuming water from the said tanker and demanded action against municipal officials for negligence. They suspect that the monkeys may have died 10 days ago.

Reacting to the incident, BRS working president KTR said, “What a shameful state of affairs in the Telangana Municipal department. Periodical cleaning & routine Maintenance which are standard protocols to be followed are being neglected. Governance has been in shambles because the Congress government prioritised politics over public health.”
