Delete database file from data folder

I want to delete a file in assets folder at runtime. I have a database file in the assets folder that is copied to the data folder at runtime, but after installing my app, the size of the application becomes twice as large (assets + data folder)!

How can I remove the database file from the assets folder to avoid this?
