Mumbai: Suspected Shiv Sena activists vandalised the 126-year-old Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS), demanding the word `Bombay` be replaced by `Mumbai` in
its name.

Armed with bamboo sticks, around 40 activists marched into the premises and vandalised the society`s signboard by taking off the `B` from `Bombay` in the name last night, police said.

The building of BNHS, a body engaged in nature conservation research, is located opposite Maharashtra Police headquarters in south Mumbai.

They also put banners in Marathi with `Mumbai Natural History Society` as its changed name.

No one has been arrested, police said, adding the society has not launched any complaint so far.
