We have performed photometric observations in the V-band of two asteroids belonging to the Karin asteroid family, (11728) Einer and (93690) 2000 VE21 , using the 2-m Himalayan Chandra Telescope, Hanle and 2k ×4k pixels CCD imager. We obtained measurements during two nights (November 25 and 26, 2005) which enabled information on the rotational periods and the lightcurve amplitudes of the asteroids to be derived. In addition, we derived the absolute magnitudes H, improving previously published values. These observations were performed to complement the IR observations obtained for a set of Karin family asteroids with the Spitzer space telescope.
