Srinagar (NVI): A teenage boy from South Kashmir’s Pulwama district today made the entire Kashmir proud as he shined in the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) exams by securing 695 points out of a total 720.

Eighteen-year-old Khan Basit Bilal, son of Bilal Ahmad Khan, a resident of Narwah village of Pulwama district secured 695 points out of 720. Talking to NVI, a visibly happy Basit said that the credit for his success goes to God and his parents besides teachers, who kept guiding him every second.

“Let me tell you, any dream can come true, if we work hard,” beamed Basit, adding that “I was expecting that I will qualify NEET but I never thought my percentage would be so high. Entire credit goes to teachers of Mission E Coaching Centre who showed me the right track and gave me tips as to how NEET can be cracked.”

He said that he studied hard from day one as he was aware that points matter in NEET.

“I am very happy at the moment and whatever position I will get in my life, my sole motive will be to serve people,” he said. “Children get involved in evil and odd things because their parents aren’t giving time to them and there remains a gap which forces them to take harsh steps.”

Basit’s father Bilal Ahmad Khan said that he is feeling much happy with the performance of his son and the environment is very much festive at their home.  “Our neighbours and relatives started visiting us with greetings and blessings,” he said, adding there are jubilations all around.

He said that the moment results were out and the word about Basit’s performance spread in the village, people in hundreds flooded their house to greet and felicitate the young boy for a remarkable performance in the NEET.
