Uproar over BJP MLA’s cruel beating of police horse

THESEhorseMussoorie MLA Ganesh Joshi has been booked for attacking and severely injuring a police horse during a protest against the state government in Dehradun.

An FIR has been filed against the MLA and his associates, and a case was lodged under the Animal Cruelty Act, but no arrests have been made yet.
