Three personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force were killed and two others injured in an ambush by suspected militants of the little known Karbi People's Liberation Tigers near Deothar in Assam's Karbi Anglong district on Saturday.

The police said the CRPF team was ambushed when it was returning to the base in three vehicles after a reconnaissance of the route to a polling station where it was to escort the polling team on Sunday.
