Mumbai Cong MLA wants flyover named after Delhi rape victim

Mumbai: After Union Minister Shashi Tharoor today favoured naming the revised anti-rape legislation after the 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim, his party's MLA from Mumbai has demanded that the Milan subway flyover here be named after the braveheart.

Congress MLA from Vile Parle Krishna Hegde met Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan this evening and suggested to him that the flyover be named after the gang-rape victim.

The flyover will be completed in four months, he said.

"In case the government discloses the actual name of the victim at a later stage, the flyover should be named accordingly," Hegde said.

"Nirbhaya (the victim) embodies the spirit of fearlessness," Hegde said, in a letter to Chavan.
