The Uttarakhand government withdrawn Shaktiman case against legislator Ganesh Joshi in connection with exercising brutality with ‘Shaktiman’, a police horse.
The incident had garnered limelight last year under Harish Rawat government. ‘Shaktiman’ had sustained injuries and thereafter died of injuries.
State government spokesperson Madan Kaushik explained that cases that were leveled during earlier government were with political motives and thus they need to be withdrawn.
It need be mentioned that Joshi had to go jail for this case and was released later.
