The National Investigative Agency, does not have any strong evidence against him, so far, but the chargesheet presented by them in the New Delhi court states that Yousuf is not a ‘real journalist’. Drawing from the ethics of photojournalism, the NIA said that a ‘real journalist’ should cover the government’s development activities such as inaugurations, statement of political party, an iftar party during Ramzan, and skill development programmes for unemployed youth, which is the ‘moral duty’ of a journalist. The NIA scanned through his devices, and they stated.... “Kamran Yusuf had hardly taken any video of such an activity, or any video or image of any such activity can rarely be seen on his laptop or mobile that clearly shows his intentions to only cover activities that are anti-national and earn money against such footages.” Yousuf dropped out of college in 2014, and began working for publications like Greater Kashmir, and Kashmir Uzma, where Photograph of Kamran Yousuf via Facebook he photographed the turmoil of the region.
