Hisar, February 22

Hisar girl Muskan, a student of MCom in SD College in Chandigarh, was among the three girl students who met the tragic end in a paying guest accommodation fire on Saturday. 

She remained president of the student union in Guru Gobind Singh College for Women-26 in 2018-19.

Muskan’s family was inconsolable after the incident. They have got a call from Muskan when she was trapped in the fire. The girl’s uncle who is in Chandigarh informed that Muskan made a call to her father in Hisar. “As the call got disconnected, his father informed me about the incident and I rushed to the spot,” Muskan’s uncle told the media in Chandigarh. 

A resident of Adarsh Nagar near railway station, Muskan’s father Rajiv Mehta is practicing advocate in Hisar District Bar. Inconsolable after hearing of the daughter’s death, Mehta said he will leave for Chandigarh. 

A brilliant student throughout her schooling and in college, Muskan used to participate in the extracurricular activities. She also participated in the youth and heritage festival of Panjab University as member of the GGSCW. She completed her schooling from Siddharth International School in Hisar.
