Anantnag's Waseem Ahmad Bhat and Poonch's Parsanjeet Kour secured seventh and eleventh rank in the prestigious UPSC civil services examination, the results of which were declared on Tuesday. Eight candidates from J&K have made it to the list of those selected.

  • Waseem Ahmad Bhat ranked seventh. He had stood 225th in his previous attempt.

Waseem Ahmad Bhat, a resident of Dooru area of Anantnag in South Kashmir, had secured 225th rank last year. “Previously, his rank was 225 but it is seventh this time. I am delighted. It is an inspiring and happy news for Anantnag as well as Kashmir. We are all very thankful to God,” Mohammad Yusuf Bhat, father of Waseem Ahmad Bhat, said. He said the family always wanted him to become an IAS officer. He said his son worked very hard for the exam and excelled even though the family’s financial condition was not sound.

In Poonch, as the news of Parsanjeet Kour's success spread, the town burst into jubilation. “We knew she would qualify, but to score such a good rank is amazing,” her uncle Prathipal Singh said.
