Court grants bail to Kashmiri photojournalist Kamran Yousuf

A court on Monday granted bail to photojournalist Kamran Yousuf 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 said some witnesses had confirmed that Yousuf was shouting "anti-national slogans" and was seen "stone pelting".

Defence counsel Warisha Farasat claimed that Yousuf was innocent.
