Tral has been in the thick of things as far as militancy-related incidents are concerned. At the same time, local students continue to bring laurels to the place. In the latest instance, a 19-year-old boy has secured 8th rank in the Common Entrance Test (CET) besides qualifying the coveted AIIMS entrance test.
Shahid Nabi, a resident of Baragam village of Tral about 50 Kms from Srinagar, was elated after achieving the feat.
How do you feel about the hard work paying off?
“I am feeling happy that I am among the toppers, but I won’t be joining any of the colleges in the state as I have already been selected in AIIMS, the result of which was declared three days ago,” Shahid said with confidence.
