Maneka Seeks Expulsion of MLA for Horse Attack

She had also written to the Uttarakhand DGP seeking strict action against the MLA. The animal rights group PETA has written to BJP president Amit Shah and Uttarakhand Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal urging them to probe the matter and disqualify Joshi.  

‘Book Vishwas on AAP Leader’s Abuse Plaint’

The court also said the complaint accused him of making “sexually coloured” remarks, which required investigation. “As mentioned in the complaint, the accused made sexually coloured remarks and made advances towards the complainant which require police investigation,” the court said. Directing police to file a compliance report by Thursday, the court further noted that “the investigation shall be done uninfluenced”.
