CPJ seeks Kamran Yousuf’s release

Srinagar: The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), an international NGO for the upholding of press freedom, said on Tuesday that Indian authorities should immediately release freelance photojournalist Kamran Yousuf who has been held without charge since September 4.
“Indian authorities must stop trying to crush the independent press in the Jammu and Kashmir region,” said CPJ Deputy Executive Director Robert Mahoney from New York. “Authorities should immediately release Kamran Yousuf.”
The Jammu and Kashmir region has been especially volatile since the militant leader Burhan Wani was killed in July 2016, and authorities have sought to reassert their control, in part, by cracking down on the media, CPJ has documented.
