Two youths died after their bike collided with a water tanker lorry in the wee hours of Wednesday morning near Rajajinagar in Bengaluru.
Subramanyanagar Inspector Govindaraj said that the accident occurred near ISKCON temple at 1 am.
The deceased were identified as Santhosh (20) and Abhilash (18). They were residents of Basaveshwarnagar in the city.
According to the police, the two had robbed 22-year-old Iqlakh and his father Yakoob and met with an accident while escaping on their bike.
"They stole two phones and a wallet from the father-son duo who had just reached Bengaluru by bus. We found one of the phones. We are still looking for the wallet and the other phone," said Govindaraj.
