A proposal to name a stretch of road in south Delhi’s Andrews Ganj after the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been cleared by the area’s civic body, PTI reported, quoting officials.

The actor, who was found dead at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 14 last year, would have turned 35 on Thursday. 

Three months after the actor’s untimely death, SDMC’s Congress councillor Abhishek Dutt 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 said, PTI reported.

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.

In the written proposal to the committee, Dutt had said that several people living in the area abutting Road No 8 hail from Bihar, and had claimed “they have been demanding” to name the stretch from Andrews Ganj to Indira Camp as ‘Sushant Singh Rajput Marg’.

So, it is proposed that Road No 8 be named after the actor in his memory, Dutt had said.
