Cops in Dehradun played Holi with Shaktimaan, the horse which suffered multiple fractures after being brutally attacked by BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi, on Thursday.
The police official were seen smearing colour on the horse and clicking selfies. The horse’s amputation surgery took place two days after its fractures were fixed by external fixation by a group of 10 doctors - six from Pantnagar and four district veterinary officers
.BJP legislator Ganesh Joshi, accused of injuring police horse ‘Shaktiman’ whose leg had to be amputated later, was granted bail on Tuesday on a personal surety of Rs 25,000.
Joshi, who has denied having attacked the horse, was in 14-day judicial custody after an Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate court refused him bail earlier.
The horse’s condition is stable but his hind leg has been amputated following serious injuries that he suffered during a protest by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) last week.
The issue created a nationwide furore and outcry by animal lovers, forcing the Uttarakhand government to order arrest of the BJP legislator.
