Tufail Ashoor Bhat from North Kashmir’s volatile Sopore area is at number three in the Jammu and Kashmir Common Entrance Test declared results.

“My teachers both at Sainik School and Coaching Institute have been a great help,” he said.

An orphan, success has been touching Tufail at every point. After his basic schooling from AFI Model School Dangerpora, Sopore, Tufail got selected in Sainik School Manasbal in class sixth in 2006. “The time period at Sainik School was very helpful in my over all upbringing,” he said.

Being one of the brightest minds in his batch, Tufail topped in Class twelfth with 88.8% marks amongst his class mates.

His teachers describe him the most obedient and hard working guy. “The three things that define a successful student – hard work, obedience and Intelligence are imbibed in Tufail,” G M Shah who taught him at Sainik School said.

This was Tufail’s second appearance in J&K CET and last year he missed chance of getting MBBS cadre by .6 points. “I got selected in Bachelors of Dental Surgery (BDS) but I left it mid way,” Tufail informed. “Mentoring at Kashmir Institute of Excellence, Parray Pora has been very helpful,” he said.

Tufail’s father, Muhammad Ashoor Bhat died after being shot dead in 2001. Tufail was first class student then. Since then his grandfather and two uncles have been taking care of him and his elder brother who is a 3rd year student at Degree College Sopore.

Close relatives of Tufail said, “Ashoor had shunned life of militancy and one day in 2001 while he was coming from market, unknown gunmen fired at him.”

Tufail said, “I don’t know exactly what happened that day as I was just a class first student.”

He continued, “my grandpa and uncles have nourished me in such a way that I never felt missing my father.” “But I pray no one’s father dies like my left me.”
