The doctors and students were facing problems due to the animals on the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) campus, stated a letter written to the prime minister by the office-bearers of the RDA.

Even the patients were being troubled by the monkeys, which often snatched food from them, added the letter signedby RDA president Dr Vijay Gurjar and general secretary Dr Harjeet Singh.

The letter further said there was a "continuous threat" of being bitten by the monkeys and stray dogs, as a result of which academics as well as the "psychological status" of the doctors and students were being affected.

"The AIIMS administration and we are feeling helpless and that is why we have written to you as a last hope," it added.
