According to the lawyer representing the state, the Forest Department has been requested to relocate monkeys in the jungle/forest in accordance with the legislation. On July 28, a letter was sent requesting the necessary permits for the relocation of monkeys in a forest. The court observed that action has already been underway towards this objective. The court also reminded that the relocation has to happen strictly as per the law.
