In statement 13, it is given that the student from Kochi and the student-in-charge of Placement activity, both stay at the Vindhya hostel.

In statament 11, it is given that Hemant, who does not belong to Kochi, studies Chemical Engineering. The only possible arrangement is Hemant is the student-in-charge of Placement activity.

From statements 1 and 9, we can infer that the students from Patna and Nagpur stay in Aravalli hostel. From statement 9, we can infer that the student from Nagpur studies Mechanical Engineering. The student studying Civil Engineering doesn't stay in Aravalli hostel. This implies he stays in Vindhya hostel and he is Abhishek. In statement 3, it is given that Hardeep neither belongs to Jodhpur, nor does he study Mechanical Engineering. In statement 7, it is given that Sanjoy is not the student-in-charge of the Cultural activity.
