The carcasses of the 13 monkeys were found in the water tank of a Public Health Engineering (PHE) project.
More than 350 families are dependent on the water plant for their daily needs. Locals believe that some miscreants have poisoned the water plant for reasons uncertain till now. The carcasses have been sent for postmortem
