She recently completed her PhD and has been offered an assistant professor post in IIT Bombay, Mein said.

“It is with much pride I would like to bring to everyone’s attention the significance of her achievement,” the deputy CM added.

Social media was full of congratulatory messages for the young scholar as netizens heaped praise on her achievement.
