The Bihar government has named a college after Satyendra Dubey, the young engineer who was killed last year shortly after he blew the whistle on corruption in the National Highway Authority of India project.

The Mahant Satanandgiri College, which comes under the Magadh University, will now be called the Satyendra Dubey Memorial College, the Minister for Law, Energy and Information & Public Relations, Shakeel Ahmed Khan, said in Patna on Wednesday.

Khan urged the Centre to initiate action against those NHAI officials, contractors and technical experts who looted public money.

He said he had written a letter to Minister of Surface Transport T R Baalu seeking action against all those named by Dubey in his letter to the office of the then prime minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Dubey was killed on November 27, 2003 in Gaya after he wrote to the PMO about a nexus between local politicians and contractors in the Golden Quadrilateral project in Bihar.

The 32-year-old was a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology and was working on the project.
