Reaching out to 14-year-old girl Insha Malik who has been blinded by pellet gun firing, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Sunday visited her in the Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi and promised to do everything to restore her eyesight, including eye transplant.

CM Mehbooba Mufti assured Insha’s parents that the state government would ensure best possible treatment, within or even outside the country, for their daughter.

The Chief Minister visited the Eye Centre at Safdarjung Hospital and enquired about the welfare of Insha, who is undergoing treatment for pellet injuries. While interacting with the doctors, Mehbooba requested them to make all possible efforts to restore the eyesight of the Kashmiri girl, according to a statement issued by her office.

“Even if she requires an eye transplant to make her see the world around again, the state government would provide full support for the same,” she told the doctors.

Insha, a 9th class student, has lost vision, after suffering pellet gun injuries during a clash between stone-pelters and security forces in Shopian several days back. The Chief Minister also enquired about the welfare of a policeman, who was grievously injured during ongoing unrest and is undergoing treatment at AIIMS.
