Police said the writings in English on the wall of a house in Saath Gumbaz area hailing Pakistan and carrying 'derogatory' comments against Prime Minister Narendra Modi were likely to have been made on Saturday night.

Police, who visited the spot on receiving a complaint, erased the writings and were investigating to find out those behind the act.

Officials said CCTV footage from the area was also being analysed as part of the probe.

A group of people staged a demonstration in front of Chowk Police station in Kalaburagi in north Karnataka, demanding that those behind the anti-national act be arrested immediately, police said.

Recently, writings such as 'Pakistan Zindabad' and 'Tipu Sultan Shale' (Tipu Sultan School) on the wall and door of a government school in Budarsingi village in Hubballi had created a flutter with locals staging a protest against it.
