“When we arrived, we were shocked to see that students were asked to stay in a temporary accommodation,” said Dr. Marathe, Upasana’s father.
According to him, there were no mattresses or running water in the rooms and the TV room of the housing block was turned into a dormitory.
“I immediately tried to get to the bottom of this issue and found that other girls had been staying in this condition for over 2 days,” he said.
“The problem arose because there was a slight delay in making the new hostel ready. After Dr Marathe bought this to my notice, we made sure the matter was resolved,” said Dr. Devang Khakhar, director, IIT Bombay. The girls have now been shifted to the new hostel, he added.
