    Arfa's father Colonel (Retd) Amjad Karim Randhawa, while takling to Geo News, said that, she had gone nowhere; she was still alive for her cause was alive. Going forward, Col Randhawa vowed to materialize her dreams.

    To a question, he said that Arfa got the best of the medical treatments available, adding he was satisfied with it.

Moreover, Arfa has won the Presidential Award for Pride of Performance.

During that trip, Arfa was awarded by a number of medals and awards from various tech societies and computer companies working in Dubai.
