In a horrific development, at least 30 dead bodies of monkeys were found inside a drinking water tank in Telangana's Nalgonda district on Wednesday. As per reports, the dead bodies of monkeys were found floating in a water tank that is located in ward number 1 of the Nandikonda Municipality. A video also surfaced on social media in which municipal workers were seen pulling out dead monkeys from the water tank. As a result, netizens are horrified by the development and are wondering what led to the death of monkeys.


As per reports, initial investigation suggests that the tragedy occurred due to an oversight, as the lid of the water tank was left open, trapping the monkeys inside. In the viral Telangana monkey video, municipal workers can be seen wearing masks and removing the dead monkeys from the tank. 


The dead monkeys were found after the residents of the area complained to authorities about the foul smell from the tank. A case has been registered, and an investigation is ongoing.


Nagarjuna Sagar Project Superintendent Engineer Nageshwar Rao was quoted saying that the water supply from the tank stopped for three days and officials, when they checked for the reasons, found the carcasses. He said the tank caters to the drinking water needs of only 50 households.


Reacting to the video, a user wrote, "Same water supplied to people? God save people from these kind of negligence shown by the authorities."


Another user wrote, "I remember a similar thing happened during my school days when a dead monkey was found in the water tank of our school."


One more user wrote, "Sorry state of governance ..I still don’t understand how come this water is supplied to people."
