Apart from this, when we talked to her family, it came to know that she was under stress even after getting enough of the hostel second year students of the college. This decision of the college administration during Kovid-19 was inhuman. It is not a suicide but an institutional murder.

However, the college principal Suman Sharma says that it is very unfortunate that we have lost one of our students in this way. We have talked to his family. Talking to her mother revealed that the student took this step due to financial issues of the family. The student did not tell his teacher, department or college about any of his problems. Dr. Suman said, the scholarship comes from the Ministry of Science and Technology. She was not even stopped, but gets to the students after 2 years. The college attests all documents and comes from the scholarship ministry. On the hostel issue, he said, when students are admitted, they are told that the hostel will be given only in the first year. In the second year, they have to vacate for the first year students. it is already.
