"The advertisement will be removed from the Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate and whereever it is displayed," he said. "We agree it is vulgar."

The issue cropped up after four journalists Sunday lodged a protest with Delhi Metro at the Rajiv Chowk station.

Akansha Kumari, one of the four, told IANS: "What does this advertisement mean? That women are on sale?"
