The incident took place in the premises of Indore police control room.
The police inspector who died on the spot has been identified as Hakam Singh Pawar. He had been posted in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal and was heading to the Shyamala Hills police station of Bhopal.
The woman assistant sub inspector who was rushed to a city hospital after being shot has been posted in the Indore control room.
