Police horse Shaktimaan, whose left hind leg was amputated after being allegedly attacked by Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) legislator Ganesh Joshi in Dehradun last month, died this evening.

The news of the animal recovering well was doing rounds last month.

An emergency amputation was carried out after it became clear that the horse could die of gangrene from the wound. (ANI)
