Jammu, Oct 26 (UNI) Two former 'Khalistan Zindabad Force' (KZF) militants, who were among the three arrested chain snatchers here, have revealed plans to revive militancy in Punjab and intensify it in Jammu and Kashmir, official sources today said.

The sources told UNI that the two former militants of 'Khalistan Zindabad Force' (KZF), whose cadre were among the militants suspected for the Ludhiana cinema hall blast early this month, have confirmed the KZF's plan to revive militancy in Punjab and intensify it in Jammu with the help of Kashmir militant outfits.

The two, who were released one and a half year ago, were arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir police as they were involved in stealing gold jewellery, cars and bikes, sources said.

The sources further said that Jagmohan Singh alias Jagga and Sulakhan Singh alias Rinka, both residents of Kotli Arjun Singh in R S Pura tehsil, were arrested by the police along with Paramjit Singh alias Pamma, resident of Chak Talba, R S Pura.

''During interrogation, they disclosed that they were approached by several outfits, who tried to lure them into militancy once again, including the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) outfits, ready to coordinate with KZF to step-up militancy in the two states, sources revealed.
