The crime was committed in a bid to loot jewellery and cash they were carrying, they said.
Both Rana and Sahu were returning home yesterday night after closing the jewellery shop when the incident took place, police said.
The miscreants followed them and attacked them with sharp weapons before fleeing with the loot, they said.
The two were rushed to the Jajpur District Headquarters Hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.
An investigation into the matter is underway.
