New Delhi:

Survivors of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots on Wednesday demanded the renaming of Rajiv Chowk, previously known as Connaught Place, after revolutionary leader Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and sprayed black paint on a Rajiv Chowk signboard.

Raising slogans against former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, the protesters garlanded the signboard with shoes and slippers and sprayed black paint on the signboard.

The incident comes a day after a statute of the late Prime Minister was vandalised in Ludhiana in Punjab by Akali Dal leaders.
