Anoop Singh and Lalmani Thakur, posted at the ITBP's 18th battalion on the outskirts of the city, were shot dead by two men on a motorcycle late last night in the infamous Meerganj locality of the city when they were allegedly "haggling" with some touts, the spokesman said.
He said the two Indo-Tibetan Border Police jawans, both in their early 30s, had come there for a pleasure trip. The jawans allegedly got into fisticuffs with some touts and soon after, a couple of men on a motorcycle shot at them and sped away, he said.
The jawans were rushed to a hospital where they succumbed to injuries, police said. A case was lodged in this connection and investigation is on, they said.
