Sikhs dangle placards as they shout slogans right through a protest to call for justice for sufferers of the 1984 bloodbath of Sikhs.

NEW DELHI — A bunch of survivors of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots on Wednesday allegedly defaced a “Rajiv Chowk” signboard in Central Delhi and demanded renaming of the world, prior to now referred to as Connaught Position, after modern chief Shaheed Bhagat Singh. 

Elevating slogans towards former high minister Rajiv Gandhi, the protesters garlanded the signboard with footwear and slippers and sprayed black paint on it.

The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) approached the police on this regard.

“A case for defacement of public assets has been registered at the foundation of a criticism filed via the NDMC,” DCP (New Delhi) Madhur Verma stated.

The incident comes an afternoon after a statue of the overdue high minister was once vandalised in Ludhiana in Punjab via Akali Dal leaders.
