Jammu, Aug 5 (UNI) More than two dozen youths in Samba have decided to form suicide squads to avenge the killing of youths protesting for restoration of land to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board in south Kashmir, reports today said.

Angered over the death of their two friends in police firing yesterday, over two dozen local youths vowed to avenge police brutality on protesters carrying Tricolour, a newspaper report said.

Two local youths, identified as Sanjeev Singh, son of Chanchal Singh and Sunny Padha, son of Khem Raj were killed and nearly two dozen injured when police fired at a group of protesters in Samba.

''The bullets had hit the forehead and throat of the victims,'' reports said.

Youths of Samba, who belong to the martial community of Dogras having a rich history of soldiering, warned if Kashmir can see gun culture, they are trained to use guns and bold enough to face bullets, the report quoting sources said.

No curfew relaxation was given in Samba following yesterday's incident as situation was tense and security forces, including army, staged flag marches in the town.
