DEHRADUN: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday accused the former Congress government led by chief minister Harish Rawat for police horse Shaktimaan's death.

Uttarakhand BJP president Ajay Bhatt said, “The State Government is to be blamed for Shaktimaan's death, the medical treatment was inadequate.”

Police horse Shaktimaan, whose left hind leg was amputated after being allegedly attacked by 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.
