Pellet victim Insha in Mumbai to regain eyesight

ISLAMABAD, Dec 6 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 06th Dec, 2016 ) : The 14-year-old Kashmiri girl Insha Ahmed, who had lost both her eyes due to the firing of pellets by Indian forces in July, this year, is in Mumbai hoping to regain her eyesight.

According to KMS, previous surgery could not undo the damage caused by the pallets. Insha is accompanied to the city by senior APHC Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah's wife, Dr Bilquees, who said that she was their third daughter.

"We have come hoping to find a way to get her vision back. We want the doctors to have a fresh look at the case. If doctors advise us to go abroad, we may do that too," said Dr Bilquees.

The girl's biological parents, Afroza and Mushtaq, are also accompanying for the check-up.

Insha had suffered the deadly injuries as she was standing beside the window of her first floor apartment one day to find out why there was a commotion when the attack completely damaged her eyesight and changed her live forever.

She was taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi, after she developed an infection due to the pellet injuries on her skull, forehead and eye; she has zero vision in both eyes at present.
