Target: K. M. Joseph, Chief Justice of Uttarakhand
Goal: Severely punish politician who brutally attacked a police horse, breaking the animal’s leg and causing his subsequent death.
A police horse sustained fatal injuries after being attacked by a legislator during a protest march. The horse, known as Shaktiman, had to have his hind leg amputated after it was broken by Ganesh Joshi, a state legislator in Uttarakhand, India. Despite being fitted with a prosthetic limb, Shaktiman succumbed to his injuries a month after the attack. Yet, Joshi has not been charged for his crime.
This brutal attack that caused an innocent animal unimaginable suffering, distress and ultimately his death must be severely prosecuted. Allowing this man to walk free sends the harmful message that killing an animal is acceptable and that one can even get away with attacking a police horse without facing consequences.
Sign this petition demanding that Ganesh Joshi is harshly prosecuted for his crime and forced to step down from his post.
Dear Chief Justice Joseph,
A police horse named Shaktiman was brutally assaulted by BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi, yet this man has been allowed to walk free. Shaktiman sustained fatal injuries in the attack and died a month after having his broken hind leg amputated.
Ganesh Joshi deserves to be punished to the full extent of the law and removed from his post. Not prosecuting this man sends the harmful message that it is legally acceptable to harm and kill an animal, even one belonging to the police force, without consequences. We demand that Joshi is harshly prosecuted for his crime and made to step down from his post.
