Anantnag: An engineering graduate from restive Anantnag district of South Jammu and Kashmir has cracked the prestigious Services Selection Board (SSB) examination, securing fourth position to join as a commissioned officer in the Indian Army.

Zubair Ahmad Itoo, who lives in a small village near Anantnag district, completed his engineering from the SRM University, Delhi, in May this year.

Zubair had cleared the examination from special selection centre (North) and will now join 49-week long officer training at Officers Training Academy in Chennai.

Following the training at Chennai Academy, Zubair will join the Indian Army as a Lieutenant.

 

The selection of Zubair into the Indian Army has come at a time when Kashmir is witnessing civil unrest in the wake of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

Zubair, whose district has seen worst violence during the present unrest, believes that "youth can only achieve something through education".
