In another video, it can be seen that when water is poured on the horse, he tries to stand on his feet while staggering for some time. When he stands properly, hundreds of people around him cheer him up by clapping. According to a report, the police have taken the horse under their supervision.

According to reports, the horse is fully conscious and has been taken to the veterinary department for treatment and care.
Some onlookers present on the road where the incident took place say that when the horse was unable to walk and was bending down repeatedly, its driver gave him several whips to make him run. But he was so upset with the heat that the horse put his head on the ground and then the driver separated him from the cart.
