SrinagarShowing her determination to study more, Insha Mushtaq, the teenage girl completely blinded by pellets fired by government forces during the 2016 uprising in Kashmir, has got admission in Delhi Public School, Srinagar – one of the prestigious schools here.
Insha recently passed her 10th class examinations.
The picture of Insha donning green coat waiting with a bag slinging over her shoulders has gone viral on social networking websites.
