Then his mother and sister took him to the medical board of Srinagar located at Jawaharnagar Srinagar. Due to inaccessibility of the building in which medical board was established, mother and sister of Suhaib couldn't take their wheelchair bound suhaib ro the medical board thus sister of child went inside and prayed for his disable brothers assessment in the vehicle which medical board authorities denied and inturn bullied and abused the girl.

Honourable Chief Secretary to Government of J&K, Chairman J&K Service selection Board, Chairman J&K Board of school Education and Lieutenant Governor of J&K but not a single stake holder took the steps except Farooq Ahmad Khan whose office send some simple communications which were ignored by both J&K Board and JKSSRB. In addition Jenab Asgar Hassan Samoon called JK Board chairperson and sent a communication to provide all facilities to Children with disabilities in upcoming Board Examinations which was not considered by JK board thus giving death to a student with disability.
The official apathy in J&K shows least priority for disability and high priorities for elections at panchayat levels not accessible for persons with disabilities as well. The whole government machinery conducts the election process and fails to deliver basic facilities to underprivileged sections of society.
