DEHRADUN:  The left hind leg of Shaktimaan, the horse which suffered multiple fractures after being brutally attacked by BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi, was amputated on Thursday evening.

The horse’s amputation surgery took place two days after it’s fractures were fixed by external fixation by a group of 10 doctors — six from Pantnagar and four district veterinary officers.

Earlier in the day, the Dehradun Police informed that the condition of police horse 'Shaktiman', had deteriorated.

The Dehradun Police had on Sunday registered a case against BJP MLA 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.
