Kanpur: Posters carrying "objectionable"
remarks against Hindu deities sparked tension in neighbouring
Ramabai Nagar district with agitated people staging protest
over the incident, police said Monday.
Tension spread in Akbarpur area in the district
yesterday after unknown miscreants pasted some posters
carrying objectionable remarks against Hindu gods, according
to Ramabai Nagar SP, Ashutosh Kumar.
The agitated crowd tried to block roads and staged
demonstration over the incident but senior police and
administration officials reached at the spot and pacified
them. The posters were also removed immediately, Kumar said.

the posters could not be found, while the printing press was
not big enough to print those posters.
