Bangalore, Mar 16 (ANI): A shootout took place between two unidentified men and security guards outside the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)'s Byalalu Centre, around 40 kilometers from Bangalore early on Tuesday morning.

The two youth were reportedly moving in a suspected manner outside the ISRO center around 3 a.m. and were attempting to get inside the campus. They opened fire on the security personnel, who approached them for questioning.

Around two rounds of fire were exchanged between the two sides.

The two suspects eventually escaped from the site.

ISRO officials are, however, not seeing it as a terrorist act, but said the fact that the two suspects were armed remained a matter of concern.

The state police have begun an extensive search to get hold of the two men. (ANI)
