As part of its outreach to the youth in Kashmir, Awantipora police has facilitated nine students from Tral who have qualified for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and would join the Medical college and become doctors.
Senior Superintendent of Police Tahir Saleem presented a trophy and a certificate to each of the students and interacted with them over a cup of tea. He appreciated their efforts to crack one of the toughest entrance examinations for India’s professional colleges.
Those who qualified are: Zubair Ahmad Rather, Imran Mohi Ud din, Syed Raif Hamid, Shahid Rasool, Uzma Jan, Syed Shahbaiz Muzafar, Arfat Ahmad Mir, Muneer Ahmed Shah and Wajahat Fayaz.
Tral was a place where a large number of young men were drien to militancy in the past. One of them Burhan Wani was killed by forces and his death triggered four months of lockdown across Kashmir.
The forces across J&K have launched a drive to connect with the youth and guide them into positive actions. The police and army together had organised Kashmir Music festivals at all the district headquarters to usher in the New Year, Going by the number of musical bands that took part, the festival was a great success.
