She was to have been released in 2007 but was detected with tuberculosis and hence was kept back in the centre. However a subsequent blood test returned a negative result.

At 6 years of age Deepa was once again to enter the Rehabilitation Program in January 2011. However whilst under sedation for the move she suffered congestive heart failure.
