After spending a long time in Mathura Jail, Dr. Kafeel Khan is finally released from Mathura jail at midnight. As soon as the news broke, Dr. Khan’s well-wishers are taking it to social media to greet him.
This comes into action after the Allahabad High Court ordered the state government to release Dr. Kafeel Khan and quashed his detention under National Security Act. Khan was arrested in February this year over a speech during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protest. The court has already set aside the detention order.

However, many are now questioning that even after the immediate release order by the court, the administration took more time to release Dr. Kafeel.
