Kolkata, Sept 12 (IBNS): The first-year Kala Bhavan (arts faculty) student of West Bengal's Visva Bharati University, who was allegedly molested by three senior students last month, officially quit the iconic institution on Friday.

“She has left today. We are extremely sorry for the development," Kala Bhavan principal Sisir Sahana said.

He said the girl, who hailed from north-Sikkim, had left the university after completing all exit formalities.

She reportedly received her transfer certificate from the university authorities as well, sources said.

The police on Aug 30 arrested three students who allegedly  sexually harassed the girl.

The girl had alleged that three senior students of the university had sexually harassed and then took obscene photographs of her.

The university earlier negated the victim's father's allegation that the institution had discouraged him from going to the police.

Visva-Bharati University is one of India's major Central government funded autonomous university located in Santiniketan, West Bengal.

It was founded by  world poet and Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.
