A Sri Lankan PhD student Kamer Nizamdeen arrested on alleged terror plot charges in Australia has been released on bail.

Foreign media reports that, Nizamdeen was released on bail after an expert found the sole piece of evidence did not contain his handwriting.

Mohamed Kamer Nizamdeen, was arrested in August after a colleague found a notebook allegedly containing details of plans to kill Malcolm Turnbull and his former deputy Julie Bishop.

The alleged list of targets also included the former speaker Bronwyn Bishop, the Sydney Opera House, major train stations and police stations across the Harbour City.

Detectives allege the Sri Lankan national was acting on his own, and despite police telling a media conference he appeared to be an Islamic State affiliate, they had not charged him with being a member of a terrorist organisation.

The case has been adjourned to October.
