This is not the first time the cutouts of langurs have been used to scare away monkeys, earlier in May this year, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) had also posted cutouts of langurs in and around the premises of the 500-bed Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre (SPCCC) in New Delhi’s Chhatarpur to combat the issue faced by the patients there. The cutouts of langurs appeared to be quite efficient in keeping monkeys away from the COVID-19 care center, according to ITBP sources.
