His father, Fayaz Ahmad Sheikh was a street vendor earning a monthly income of Rs 2000.Fayaz also worked as a cobbler to supplement his family needs and manage the education of his children. Due to poor economic conditions and death of mother, his elder sister left studies in class 9th and maintained household chores. Before floods hit Anantnag, his father was suffering from acute food poisoning due to consumption of contaminated water and was hospitalized.
