Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 5: Hours after the last rites of NSG officer Lt. Col. E.K. Niranjan, who was killed in the operation against terrorists at the Pathankot air base, Kerala's labour department renamed the industrial training institute (ITI) in his hometown in his honour.

Labour Minister Shibu Baby John, in a press release issued here, said the ITI in Elumbulsherry village, from where Niranjan hails, will now be known as Lt. Col. Niranjan Memorial Government ITI.
