At least two drug smugglers were killed in an exchange of fire with a Rangers team here on Thursday.
Police sources said that paramilitary troops tried to flag down a suspected vehicle for search in Batapur area but the motorists opened fire at the law enforcers instead of stopping their vehicle.
In retaliatory firing of Rangers, both the men were killed. Bottles of liquor and other drugs were recovered from the vehicle by the Rangers. The bodies were shifted to a hospital for medico-legal formalities.
