I did what I had to do: Indian Mujahideen techie

'I leave my fate to God. He knows what I have done and I have no remorse for anything.' -- this is what Asghar Peerbhoy, the 31-year-old Indian Mujahideen [Images] techie nabbed recently by the Mumbai police had to say during his interrogation.
Peerbhoy, who made waves for his software skills and his Rs 19 lakh CTC, is a tough nut, say investigating officials.
Intelligence Bureau officials told rediff.com that Peerbhoy, who is well versed in developing software for corporate emailing, was identified first by Riyaz Bhatkal.
Bhatkal saw in Peerbhoy a potential hacker and hence took him into his fold. The brief given to Peerbhoy by Bhatkal was to hack into WiFi networks and send out mails to the police before and after every terror strike.
According to investigating agencies, Peerbhoy comes across as a tough nut and an extremely committed person. The manner in which he speaks or answers questions is proof enough to show that he was extremely committed to the Indian Mujahideen and has absolutely no regrets.
