it may be an offence under Section 434 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC): “434. Mischief by destroying or moving, etc., a landmark fixed by public authority.

Your query is pertaining to section 434 of Indian Penal Code that is related to Mischief by destroying or moving, etc., a land-mark fixed by public authority.
