Fathepur police station in-charge Mukesh Kanungo and Constable Ram Prakash were shot dead when they began chasing the miscreants after they sped past a police barricade ignoring signals to stop the vehicle for a routine check up, said Sharma.
He said the two policemen were on a routine duty at the check post near Beswa village, when one Ajay Chaudhary and his four associates approached the police barricade in a sports utility vehicle.
The policemen deployed there signalled the SUV to stop, but the vehicle sowed down momentarily and then sped past the check post, prompting the policemen to give them a chase, he said.
At this, the SUV occupants opened fire at the police vehicle, killing the inspector and the constable, the Sikar SP said.
He said Ajay Chaudhary and his aides have past criminal records.
The bodies of the two slain policemen have been handed over to their family members after post mortem, he said.
