Some unidentified assailants allegedly shot dead two policemen at a police checkpost in Jagraon on Saturday evening, police said on Saturday.

Police said the two cops, Bhagwan Singh and Dalwinder Singh, both assistant sub-inspectors, were part of a team positioned at a checkpost erected near Jagraon’s grain market after they were tipped off about possible smuggling. They had just signaled a truck stop for checking when a car bore down on them. Police said occupants of the car shot at the police team.

Bhagwan Singh and Dalwinder Singh both died on the way to a hospital, police said. Both policemen were part of Ludhiana Rural Police’s Crime Investigation Agency.

A third cop was also wounded in the incident.

Chief Minister Amarinder said a massive search operation was underway to find the assailants. He also said the cops' families will be taken care of in "every possible way"  

He said in a tweet: "Unfortunate fatal attack on two of our brave CIA policemen in Jagraon. Intensive manhunt is on and the culprits would be nabbed soon. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and we will ensure that they are taken care of in every possible way".
