Delhi’s India Islamic Cultural Centre Signboard Defaced

New Delhi: A signboard pointing to the India Islamic Cultural Centre in the city’s upscale Lodhi Road area was defaced on Sunday, allegedly by

rightwing group Hindu Sena that claimed its workers were responding to radical terrorist activities in the world, particularly France. Police said the posters, declaring “Jihadi Terrorist Islamic Centre”, were removed immediately and an FIR registered against unknown persons at the Tughlak Road station after the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) reported the matter.

“We have registered a case under Section 3 of the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act against unknown people. We are scanning CCTV cameras installed in and around the vicinity but have not found any relevant footage,” a senior police officer said. Am NDMC official added that police was informed “to take action as per norms”. Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta said he got to know that some of the group’s workers were behind it.
