This was working on older Mac using CtrlShiftPower. But this doesn't work on the new Macbook Pro 2016 with touch bar. Can someone please help. I want to lock my Mac without putting it to sleep.

I would recommend using BetterTouchTool for this. It also includes a lot of other useful features for shortcuts, gestures, touch bar, etc. Once you've started using it, you'll never want to live without.

How To Add "Screen Lock" to Touch Bar "Control Strip"

  1. Settings → Keyboard
  2. "Expand Control Strip" on touch bar by clicking arrow on the left of the 4th icon from the right of your touch bar.
  3. "Customize Control Strip..." > Drag Screen Lock somewhere onto the touch bar (of the expanded control strip view)
  4. Settings → Keyboard → Press Fn key to → Expand Control Strip (assuming you don't use Fn keys for other things)
  5. Hold fn and press the "Screen Lock" icon (in any app/view) to lock your screen!

TIP: Put "Screen Lock" on far left (same side as fn) = lock screen with one hand.

you can add the sleep function to the touch bar through system preferences > keyboard > customize control strip and then drag the sleep icon to the touch bar, allowing you to put it to sleep by pressing 1 button.
