Dehradun (Uttarakhand): Following the furore over police horse, Shaktimaan, being allegedly assaulted by the BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi, the latter was arrested here on Friday morning.
Last night, it took two hours for the doctors to get Shaktimaan’s injured leg amputated, which according to them was successful.
The horse’s amputation surgery took place two days after his fractures were fixed by external fixation by a group of 10 doctors – six from Pantnagar and four district veterinary officers.
Earlier, the BJP MLA had said that he is ready to face any penalty if he was found guilty for assaulting and severely injuring a horse.
The Dehradun Police on Sunday had registered a case against Ganesh Joshi for beating a police horse, reportedly breaking one of its legs, during a protest against Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Monday for “misuse” of funds. (ANI)
