Escaping # in URL when generating PDF

I am using Marked v 2.5.35.

I have a URL in my markdown doc like this which has a # symbol in it:-

I am using the Discount processor and the Github style and generating a PDF.
The # symbol gets replaced by the escape code %23 which breaks the link.

Any ideas on how to avoid this escaping of the # char in my generated PDF?

    I'm not seeing any similar escaping occurring. Does this happen in the
    preview? Can you provide sample documents showing the issue?
