133 Days ago

Dehradun, March 18 (IANS) BJP Uttarakhand legislator Ganesh Joshi, accused of hitting and severely injuring a police horse which necessitated the amputation of one of its legs, was arrested on Friday, police said.

The horse Shaktimaan is alive but his injured hind leg has been amputated, police added.

Joshi, who represents Mussoorie, was arrested outside a Patel Nagar hotel following an FIR against him. Senior police officials told IANS that the legislator, who has professed innocence, was being questioned in the case.

Dehradun district police chief Sadanand Date said Joshi was responsible for the injury to the hind legs of the horse belonging to mounted police.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the principal opposition in the state, has hit back by describing the police action as "illegal".

Joshi allegedly attacked Shaktimaan during a protest against the Harish Rawat government in Dehradun on Monday. (IANS)
