One policeman was killed and two others injured when a Control Room vehicle rammed into a lamp post here during the wee hours of Sunday.

The deceased, senior civil police officer Ajayakumar, who hailed from Amaravila, was part of a team patrolling Palayam and nearby areas. The incident occurred near the AKG Center around 5.30 am when the vehicle was headed towards a petrol pump nearby.
