The Uzbek State Border Committee says the villagers attacked the two guards after they tried to prevent the group from illegally crossing into Uzbekistan.
The Uzbek statement follows a Kazakh statement on May 3 that said Kazakh guards had detained an Uzbek guard who had chased a Kazakh youth back into Kazakhstan.
This is the second such incident on the Uzbek-Kazakh border in recent weeks.
In April, Kazakhstan officially protested an incident that saw Uzbek border guards crossing into Kazakhstan to beat and abduct a Kazakh shepherd.
