After union minister Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday 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 in Mumbai 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 gangrape 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.
