Watch- #IsHorseAntiNational: People ask Uttarakhand BJP MLA who broke leg of a police horse
Dehradun Police has booked BJP MLA from Mussoorie Ganesh Joshi, who in an alleged brutal act beat a police horse with a stick and broke one of its legs. The incident happened on Monday afternoon when BJP members were protesting against Uttarakhand Chief Minister, Harish Rawat near Vidhan Sabha.

Ganesh Joshi and his unidentified associates have been booked under Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act, Section 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle, etc., of any value or any animal of the value of fifty rupees) and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC.

The BJP MLA has denied the accusation calling it an attempt by the government to shift focus from the real issue.

The gruesome act of Ganesh Joshi is being severely criticised on the social media. People have taken to twitter and asking the BJP MLA #IsHorseAntiNational?

Twitteraties have also sought reaction of Union minister and a animals rights activist, Maneka Gandhi over this horrific incident.

Noted journalist Shekhar Gupta said that at one side BJP members claim to protect cows and on the other side they beat a horse.

Congress leader Milind Deora also criticised the behaviour of MLA Joshi calling it barbaric.

MLA Joshi has claimed that the horse suffered the injury as its leg got trapped in the iron-angle on the roadside. He added that he was not hitting the horse with stick, but, was trying to stop the horse.

After being allegedly hit by the BJP MLA the innocent horse suffered multiple fractures in its rear leg and was immediately rushed to district veterinary hospital for treatment. The doctors have to say that the leg of the horse may have to be amputed if condition worsens. Opinion of vet doctors at Indian Military Academy have also been taken by the Dehradun Police.

Later the Uttarkhand CM Harish Rawat also visited the horse to take stock of its condition.
