BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi on Shaktiman's death: Cut my leg if found guilty

Dehradun: The BJP legislature, who is in the middle of the controversy around Shaktiman woes, expressed his condolences on Wednesday stating he feels sad about it.

Speaking to ANI, BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi said, “Very sad. I already said that I'm not at fault, if found guilty then cut my leg.”

Shaktiman, the horse of Uttarakhand Police, had a leg amputated after being allegedly assaulted by Joshi.

It had fallen down during the protest after BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi allegedly tried to pull it down.

Joshi was seen trying to hit the horse with a stick and was also accused of breaking its leg. He has, however, maintained his innocence claiming he was just trying to scare the animal.

Joshi, who was arrested on charges of attacking Shaktiman, was later granted bail on March 22 by a local court here.
