Bengaluru: A major road in the city at Yelahanka was named after Major Akshay Girish, who lost his life fighting terrorists who had attacked an Army unit at Nagrota in Jammu on November 29, 2016.

Deputy Chief Minister Dr G. Parameshwar, who took to Twitter, expressed happiness and said a major road in the west Bengaluru will be named after Major Akshay Girish on Vijay Diwas.

 

Girish's father Girish Kumar, a retired IAF pilot, lauded the efforts of the BBMP in naming a road after his son and said "Major Akshay Girish was not only our son, but son of the country who fought bravely to save lives of the hostages. He fought continuously for three hours."

When roads are named after bravehearts and martyrs it will be an inspiration to the younger generations to emulate and help support our country in all situations, he said.

He said the government is proactive and helping the people of the uniformed services and help their family in distress.
