Srinagar, Mar 14: Kashmir photojournalist Kamran Yousuf, who was arrested last year, was released from Delhi jail Wednesday morning, reports said.

On Monday, a Delhi court 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 04 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".
