The institute has also decided to return the entire course fee to the victim’s family.

“The institute administration has decided to refund Rs 1.80 lakh deposited by her at the time of her admission here in 2008,” Arora said.

He said he would personally go to Delhi at the earliest to hand over a cheque for the amount to the girl’s parents.
