Dehradun: Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Ganesh Joshi, who is accused of allegedly attacking horse 'Shaktimaan', on Thursday visited the stable to see the injured police horse.
Mussoorie MLA Joshi has been booked for beating the police horse with a stick during the party's protest on March 14.
The legislator, however insisted that he had not inflicted injury on the horse, and that it had gone out of control during the protests and one of its hind legs got stuck in a hole dug up to put up the barricades, injuring it.
The beast underwent a surgical procedure yesterday to fix one of its hind legs.
Meanwhile, People for Animals (PFA) Uttarakhand member Gauri Maulekhi said the BJP MP should be arrested and expelled from the party.
