Mohammad Kurbaan, 30, sold bags from a shop in Central Delhi’s Nabi Karim. But he collapsed after being hit with the brick and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. According to local reports, a First Information Report (FIR) was handed to an unknown individual by police under sections of causing death by negligence.
Police discovered the owner of the building had left two bricks above a water tank to prevent monkeys from opening it.
However, officers said a group of monkeys managed to remove both of the bricks.
One of the bricks was thrown off the second-floor roof and another was hurled onto a nearby terrace.
This comes after the wife of a leader of a major political party in India fell to her death while trying to escape a monkey attack.
Sushma Devi was attacked last month on the terrace of her house in Kairana city.
In a bid to avoid the attack, she jumped down from the terrace.
She was rushed to the hospital but sadly died of her injuries.
