India’s Mowgli girl gets world's attention – here’s how International media is covering it (video)
A girl, who was found at India-Nepal border living with a troop of monkeys, has become international news.
From the neighbouring Pakistan to the UK and USA, several publications are running the story.
They note that the eight-year-old is unable to speak, walks on all fours and screeches to communicate.
The girl, rescued two months ago, is put up in a hospital but remains terrified of humans.
She was discovered by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav while on routine patrol in Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary.
It is believed that the girl had been raised by monkeys and there is no information about her except that she was fully clothed when discovered.
She is learning to walk on legs and to eat with her hands from a plate.
And there is the inevitable comparison with Mowgli 1.0 of Jungle Book from Rudyard Kipling.
Most of the international publications seem to have sourced their information from a Cover Asia report.
