Comrade Krishan Dev Sethi is no more, however, his eyes, which saw so much—Dogra rule, the partition, riots of 1947, drafting of Jammu and Kashmir constitution, political upheavals, 1975 accord and abrogation of J-K’s semi-autonomous status — will continue to see.

Families sources told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that the 93-year-old Sethi, who was the last surviving member of J-K’s constituent assembly, had pledged to donate his eyes.

“Within hours of his death on 28 January, his corneas were removed and successfully transplanted to two persons suffering from corneal blindness,” they said adding that the corneal transplant took place a day after his death. (KNO)
