A video of the narco-analysis interrogation of Safdar Nagori accessed by Times Now shows the former Simi chief and terrorist admitting on tape that the Samjhauta Express blasts were carried out by those trained in Pakistan. He names Simi operative Adbul Razzak as the person responsible for the explosions that killed 68 people on February 18, 2007.
The video shows the interrogator asking him, “Who ordered the Samjhauta blasts?” Nagori answers, “Abdul Razzak did this. He is from Indore. He told me, ‘You cannot do anything, you are a politician now.’ He would say, ‘You have retired from SIMI. They give you money and you keep eating and drinking.’ He once told me, ‘You have become a politician, you cannot do jihad, you need a quality life. I will do something or the other now.'”
When asked about Razzak’s contacts in Pakistan, Nagori says, “He has relatives in Pakistan.” Nagori adds, “Abdul Razzaq used to say he could do this on his own. He was in SIMI, he was with Misbah ul Islam Calcuttawala. Abdul Razzaq, he said he could do it on his own. He was SIMI incharge of Indore.”
In the video, Nagori admits he wanted to procure an imported Mauser gun. For this, Nagori says, he contacted LeT operative Nasir and told him he needed it “to punish those culprits for a project”. He adds, “When Nasir told us Mauser and AK47 can be procured, we decided that when we need to target someone and take no risk, we can use the 47. But we wanted to target individuals, and not the masses.”
