"You are impotent and are unable to execute the work given to you by your handler" -- This was a taunt allegedly made by the wife of Vaseem, who was arrested in Gujarat on charges that he was part of an Islamic State module. Gujarat ATS officials informed OneIndia that these taunts by his wife drove him to undertake the tasks assigned to him by his handler who is of Indian origin.
Fed up by the taunts and being called impotent, Vaseem along with his brother Naeem on January 15 decided to execute a task assigned by their handlers. They went to Chotila, but stopped short of executing the task as they developed cold feet. The brothers then are alleged to have decided to torch vehicles in Bhavnagar, but once again stopped short as they were scared.
Investigations have shown that the two brothers were in touch with their handler who went by the alias, 'bigcat' and 'onegoal1aim'. The handler also used the name 'katak313' to chat with the two brothers.
The ATS official said that the details regarding the taunts was given to them by Vaseem. "We have not yet initiated any action against her. We are in the process of verifying the claims made by him. If evidence comes our way, then we will initiate action against her," the officer said.
