Booked initially under Cruelty to Animals Act, several non-bailable sections of IPC were also slapped against the BJP MLA from Mussuorie in the course of investigations, he said.

Non-bailable offences which Joshi has been charged with include stopping government officials from discharging their duties, he said.

Raghav said a bail petition on behalf of Joshi will be filed in the sessions court on Monday. Joshi is currently lodged at Shuddhowala jail in Dehradun.
