Dehradun: Uttarakhand Police horse Shaktiman, which suffered multiple fractures on its hind leg during a BJP protest in Dehradun, last month triggering widespread outrage, died on Wednesday.

Here is the video which was shot just two hours before the brave horse left us. 

The video has been shared by 'Miss Tanakpur Hazir Ho' fame filmmaker Vinod Kapri, who also made a documentary on Shaktiman.

The 13-year-old was given a prosthetic leg and was confined to the police lines. It was a well trained horse and part of Uttarakhand Mounted Police for years.

The horse had lost its leg after it was brutally beaten during clashes between BJP protesters and the police on March 14.

BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi, accused of assaulting Shaktiman , was arrested after national outrage over the incident.
