Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Sunday announced that 13 horses with policemen riders will be inducted into the Mumbai police force after the Republic Day parade at Shivaji Park.
Deshmukh said the mounted police unit, which would patrol the streets of the city, was disbanded in 1932 due to growing vehicular traffic.
The 13 horses which have been acquired are between the ages of 8 years and 10 years and 11 of them will participate in the Republic Day parade and then start their duties the next day with patrolling the city’s western shoreline.
After Mumbai, the unit could also be replicated in cities like Pune and Nagpur.
Here’s what they will look like:
A few days back, Amul dedicated a topical doodle depicting the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal exit.
Playing with the words, ‘Gone with the wind’, the text on Amul’s cartoon reads, ‘Gone With The Windsor?’, showing a caricature of Queen Elizabeth with Prince Harry waving goodbye to her, accompanied by his wife Meghan Markle and son Archie.
