2 CRPF jawans on poll duty killed in Gujarat | India News

NEW DELHI: Two Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers were killed and two others were injured after their colleague opened fire at them in Gujarat‘s Porbandar.
Porbandar collector and district election officer, A M Sharma, said all the jawans connected to the incident belong to a CRPF battalion from Manipur. They were sent here by the Election Commission ahead of the next month’s Gujarat assembly elections, he added.
Voting in the Porbandar district will be held on December 1 in the first phase of the state polls.
The jawans were staying inside a cyclone centre in Tukda Gosa village, about 25 km from Porbandar. The centre is being used as a shelter for the visiting CRPF jawans.
“A jawan opened fire at his colleagues with his assault rifle over some unknown issue on Saturday evening. While two jawans died on the spot, two others were injured. They were shifted to a hospital in Jamnagar. One of them received a bullet injury in his stomach and the other was hit on his leg,” Sharma said, adding that further investigation will be carried out by the police.
