He further commiserated with the students and university management over the unfortunate incident and the loss of one student who was reportly burnt beyond recognition in the inferno. 

On her part, the Vice Chancellor commended the State Government for conducting on-the-spot assessment and responded timely, assuring that the items will be judiciously utilized.
