Taj Mahal minaret pinnacle falls during repair work?

Maintenance workers found the pinnacle of the south western minaret of Taj Mahal lying on a cleaning platform surrounding the structure in Agra on Monday, sparking worries that the turret may have fallen off. However, officials of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said that the pinnacle was removed because the structure had weakened, blaming monkeys for it.
