Asif Rashid Sheikh, Anantnag, April 2017

Asif Sheikh is a victim of the pellet guns used by Indian Security Forces in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, ostensibly for law and order purposes. Asif is permanently blinded in one eye, and his other eye is strained as a consequence, making it impossible for him to play and study.
