The protesters, who claimed to belong to the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), reached the 6, Tughlak Lane residence here and blackened Agarwal's nameplate.

Agarwal's remark linking Hindu gods to alcohol had led to an uproar in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, with the BJP leaders strongly objecting to it.

He was speaking during a debate in the House on lynchings in the name of the cow and narrated an incident in 1991 when he visited a school that was turned into a jail.

He said the names of some Hindu deities linked to some types of alcohol were written on the wall of the school.

The Samajwadi leader later withdrew his remarks after which they were expunged.
