Cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday pledged to support the education of five-year-old Zohra, who lost her father, ASI Abdul Rashid, in a militant attack in Kashmir’s Anantnag district last month.
Gambhir said he would help the young child realise her dreams and support her education for life.
Zehra replied to the cricketer saying that she and her family were “very happy” with his gesture.
Thank you Gautam Sir. My family and I are very happy with your gesture. I want to become a doctor.
Rashid was killed on August 28 when militants fired at him at Mehandi Kadal in Anantnag district. Photographs of Zohra crying inconsolably over the coffin of her father went viral on social media.
