Rizvi college prays for Minal Panchal

April 20, 2007 02:44 IST

Students of Mumbai's Rizvi College held a prayer and a condolence meeting for twenty-six-year-old Mumbai girl Minal Panchal, who was killed in a shooting in Virginia Tech University on Tuesday.

A student of South Korean origin Cho Seung-Hui opened fire, killing 32 people at the University campus before committing suicide.

It was the deadliest shooting rampage in US history.

Minal had completed her undergraduate degree from Rizvi College of Architecture Mumbai in 1998.
