Online search for sex slaves led Parbhani youth to Islamic State: Cops

By: 
AURANGABAD: Investigating agencies say the Parbhani-based ISIS suspect+ 's inclination towards the terror outfit stemmed from his attraction for sex slaves.

After a discreet operation for about three months, the state Anti-Terrorism Squad sleuths arrested 31-year-old Naser, alias Qadir Bin Abu-bakr Yafai Chaush, from Parbhani, nearly 187km from Aurangabad, on July 14, for his suspected ISIS connections.
The probe revealed that he was appointed the chief of the outfit's local module. During interrogation, police said Naser told them that he got in touch with his handler while searching for sex slaves+ online.

 

In the 3,632-page chargesheet filed against Naser and three others on Friday, the ATS pointed out at his online searches and chats about the sex slaves. He would ask questions about the sex slaves to his handler via Facebook chats and some cellphone- based applications, an officer said.

According to the chargesheet, he created email addresses such as This email address is being protected from spambots.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for communicating with their handler, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

A senior ATS officer, who has examined the chats between Naser and his handler, told TOI , "The accused's first attraction to the outfit seems to have come from his attraction for sex slaves. He would ask questions about these women, their age, their origin, looks and so on."

While scanning Naser's online surfing history, the ATS has found that for hours together he would search online for sex slaves, their pictures and read about them and even watch videos available online.

If the ATS officers are to be believed, Naser's wife was the first one to notice a change in his behaviour and gradually started objecting to his habit of sitting on his laptop for days together. As he did not pay heed to her objections, she brought the matter to her father-in law's notice.

The sleuths maintained that the ISIS has changed the way terrorists operate+ , hire recruits and make them carry out terror activities across the globe. The IS online propaganda is so lethal and effective that even a rational and well educated persons thought process is likely to get corrupted after coming in touch with them, a sleuth said.
 

 

 
The ATS officer, who has been studying the terror outfit's modus operandi to attract recruits from across the globe, told TOI : "After they spot a curious youth trying to get in touch with them, they study his likes and dislikes. If he has strong religious inclination, he is provided with religious literature with twisted interpretations and concocted translations"
