Afsham Ashiq, once a stone pelter now leads J&K's women's football team

Afshan Ashiq who was the poster girl of stone pelters is now the captain of the Jammu and Kashmir Woman's football team. The 21-year-old Ashiq walked across the lawns of the residence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday, saying she does not want to "look back.” A renowned Bollywood filmmaker, who for now wishes to remain anonymous, plans to make a film on the tall Ashiq. She led her 22-member football team that called on Singh, along with three officials. Ashiq said she was pleasantly surprised to see how he wasted no time in redressing their grievances over the lack of sports-related infrastructure in the state.
