JAMMU: Arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA), six and a half month ago on the charges of stone pelting in the Valley, Kashmiri photojournalist Kamran Yousuf was granted bail on Monday by a New Delhi court.
This development has come a day after Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti sought Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s intervention towards the release of the photo-journalist.
Additional Sessions Judge Tarun Sherawat allowed the bail plea of Yousuf, asking him to furnish two sureties of Rs 50,000.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on September 5 arrested Yousuf along with Javed Ahmad Bhat.

Opposing the bail plea, the NIA said some witnesses had confirmed that Yousuf was shouting "anti-national slogans" and was seen "stone pelting".

Defense counsel Warisha Farasat claimed that Yousuf was innocent.
