Shaktiman, the horse allegedly beaten up by a BJP MLA will sadly lose his decade-old job in the Police force.

The horse suffered grievous injuries during a protest rally by BJP workers in Dehradun and was allegedly beaten up by BJP's Mussourie MLA, Ganesh Joshi.

Shaktiman is badly battered, bruised and is left with broken limbs. And this, when he is one of the most decorated horses of the Uttarakhand Police force.

The horse was purchased for Rs 97,000 when he was just a three-year-old foal from an animal fair in Punjab.

Shaktiman and #IsHorseAntiNational are among the top trends on Twitter and netizens are wishing him a speedy recovery. But the tweets also say a lot about how animals in the police and army are being treated.
