Kamran Yousuf the Kashmiri photojournalist arrested on stone-pelting charges last year, has been released from Delhi jail Wednesday morning, reports said.
A Delhi court Monday this week had granted bail to Kamran, who was
arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in an alleged funding case six months ago. Additional Sessions Judge Tarun Sherawat allowed the bail plea of Yousuf, asking him to furnish two sureties of Rs 50,000.
Yousuf was summoned to a police station in Pulwama on September 4 last
year and handed over to the NIA a day after. He was later flown to Delhi by the NIA.
Opposing the bail plea, the NIA had said some witnesses had confirmed that Yousuf was shouting “anti-national slogans” and was seen “stone pelting”.
