Similar placards were also sighted during anti-CAA protests in Mumbai and Karnataka, reports Asian news International (ANI).
The said protest was being held in Chennai's Valluvar Kottam region on Saturday (11 January).
In a similar development, administration of the Mysore University filed a complaint with the police after posters demanding a "free Kashmir" were sighted in the campus during a protest against recent violence in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).
