Street in New Delhi to be named after the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput

A stretch of road in Andrews Ganj in south Delhi will soon be named the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput as the area’s civic body has cleared a proposal for it, officials said on Thursday.

Sushant, who would have turned 35 on Thursday, was found dead at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 14 last year. His fans and admirers took to social media to remember the actor whose untimely demise was followed by a high-profile investigation.

SDMC’s Congress councillor Abhishek Dutt shared the proposal with civic body’s road naming and renaming committee in September 2020. “It was cleared by the SDMC House in its meeting yesterday,” an official was quoted as saying by PTI.

Abhishek Dutt sent a written proposal to the committee in which he mentioned that many people living in the area abutting Road No 8 hail from the state of Bihar. He claimed that ‘they demanded’ to name the stretch from South Delhi’s Andrews Ganj to Indira Camp as Sushant Singh Rajput Marg in his memory.

Dutt also went on to add that the decision of naming the road came in after a mutual consensus from all political parties including AAP and BJP.
