A poster reading "Maharana Pratap Road" was found pasted over the signboard of Delhi's iconic Akbar Road, a news agency ANI reported.

However, the yellow and pink poster pasted over the original name by unidentified persons was removed by authorities in the presence of police personnel.

Notably, today is the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap.

It is not yet known as to who was behind this act of pasting the poster.

As per media reports, the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), under whose zone Akbar Road falls, is investigating the incident and would launch an investigation. "For any road to be renamed, the process has to go through the Council and no such official move has been initiated", said NDMC spokesperson MS Sherawat. However, this is not the first time that an Akbar Road signboard has been defaced.
