ruby - using include method in a case statement

I'm using something like this:

case referer
when (referer.include? "some_string")
redirect_link = edit_product_path
when (referer.include? "some_other_string")
redirect_link = other_product_path

Unfortunately, this returns nil even if the string
is present in the variable

Here's what i tried in Ruby Console:

ruby-1.8.7-p334 :006 > jasdeep = "RAILS"
ruby-1.8.7-p334 :026 > case jasdeep
ruby-1.8.7-p334 :027?> when (jasdeep.include? "AI")
ruby-1.8.7-p334 :028?> puts "Hello"
ruby-1.8.7-p334 :029?> end
=> nil

Any inputs will be appreciated.
