When a young Indian girl was reportedly found roaming the forest in the protection of monkeys, observers dubbed her ‘Mowgli Girl.’ Local news channels reported her ‘feral’ behavior and dubbed her story a modern-day The Jungle Book believing she was raised by wild animals in the jungle.
Axar.az reports citing Onedio.
If you know "The Jungle Book," then the girl's story may be familiar. Observers also thought that and called her the"Mowgli" of the modern life.
However, the chief medical officer of the hospital in Bahraich says the truth is much darker.
She has been receiving treatment since she was found in January.
The unnamed young girl believed to be between 8 and 9-years-old is unable to walk or talk.
According to Dr. DK Singh, who has been treating the young girl, she is severely mentally and physically disabled.
She was found nearby the Katarniya Ghat forest range in northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, reportedly naked, crawling on all fours and screeching at passersby in distress.
The young girl has made vast progress since her medical treatment began in January.
She can now walk standing upright and eat solid food as well as engage with hospital staff.
While the little girl’s safety is paramount and her health is improving the tale doesn’t quite have the happy ending befitting Disney – or the narrative of the local news.
