A stretch of road in Andrews Ganj in South Delhi will soon be named after late actor Sushant Singh Rajput as the area’s civic body has cleared a its proposal, officials said on Thursday.
This was announced on the actor’s 35th birthday. Sushant was found dead at his residence in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. Celebrities, fans and admirers took to social media platform to pay tribute to the deceased actor. While many claim that SSR was ‘murdered’, a high-profile investigation is underway.
SDMC’s Congress councillor Abhishek Dutt in September last year had moved the proposal to name the road after the actor. “It was cleared by the SDMC House in its meeting yesterday,” a senior official was quoted as saying. The Andrews Ganj councillor in the BJP-led South Delhi Municipal Corporation had sent the proposal to the civic body’s road naming and renaming committee.
Dutt, in the proposal, said people living in the area adjacent to Road No 8 are from Bihar who claimed ‘they have been demanding’ to name the stretch from Andrews Ganj to Indira Camp as Sushant Singh Rajput Marg.
