Story highlights

A poster with 'Maharana Pratap Road' written over it was pasted over the original 'Akbar Road' signpost in Lutyens Delhi overnight

Delhi's well known Akbar Road was briefly "renamed" Maharana Pratap Road today after a poster with "Maharana Pratap Road" written over it was pasted over the original "Akbar Road" signpost in Lutyens Delhi overnight.

The poster was removed by the police today. 

The miscreants responsible for defacing the signpost have not been identified so far.

A senior police official said that the patrolling staff saw the poster and removed it.

The police official said that the patrolling staff was awaiting a complaint from the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) in order to register a case.

May 9, incidentally, happens to be the birth anniversary of Rajput king Maharana Pratap who was involved in a prolonged war with Akbar after he refused to accept Mughal suzerainty.
