"Spoke to Home Minister @rajnathsingh ji to look into Kamran Yousuf's case. I've requested him to intervene so that the life of a young budding journalist does not get ruined," Mehbooba said on Twitter.
Yousuf, a freelance photojournalist, was arrested by the NIA on September 5 last year for his alleged involvement in stone-pelting incidents.
The NIA has alleged he was acting as a conduit for those involved in terror funding.
Kashmir editors guild and journalists in the valley have also sought his release, saying his arrest violated the freedom of the press.
