I am wondering how can we monitor the permission on char file using monit application

I have below char file

/dev/null

and below monitrc config

check file dev_null with path /dev/null
if failed permission 666 then exec "chmod 666 /dev/null" as uid root and gid wheel

But it doesn't seems to work when file /dev/null has permission 600

I really appreciate any help on that.
