Mer­ci­ful Re­lease of Shak­ti­man

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

In what is pos­si­bly a mer­ci­ful re­lease, Shak­ti­man, the dec­o­rated po­lice horse that lost a leg in an at­tack by BJP MLA Ganesh Joshi last month, breathed its last on Wed­nes­day. The only con­so­la­tion: the an­i­mal spent its last few weeks at the po­lice lines in Dehradun, where a group of po­lice­men and an an­i­mal rights ac­tivist from the US, Jamie Vaughan, took care of it. This was a clear case of cru­elty, which mer­its harsh pun­ish­ment, re­gard­less of what his party says.
