NEW DELHI: Officials planning security for a South Asian summit meeting are having trouble with monkeys, the Press Trust of India said Monday.

The news agency said hordes of wild monkeys have refused to be relocated from the Nandi Hills, where leaders of the seven member-nations of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation will hold private talks in nearby Bangalore.

The Press Trust said simians captured and moved from Nandi to another area have been returning despite a security cordon.

The agency said the monkeys also have created havoc in the area where they have been relocated, tearing up crops and assaulting at least four villagers.
