What happens to the security deposit when one of the two tenants leave the flat

My flatmate is leaving the flat, the agreement will end on March next year. Security deposit was 1 lakh. The Flat manager is returning half deposit to her and forcing me to pay the rest of security deposit.

The security deposit is usually only returned when the tenancy ends. If the landlord does agree to return some of the security deposit early, firstly, this agreement should be put in writing. Secondly, you may ask for some time to find a new tenant and then the security deposit may be paid.
