    The three persons were in the tent of a constable training centre at Nathnagar when lightning hit the tent at 12.45 am, Senior Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar said.

    The constables were rushed to a hospital where two of them were declared brought dead, the SSP said.

    On Tuesday, three persons including a couple were killed in two separate incidents of lightning striking them in the Khammam district. They met with a tragic end while standing under a giant tree at a cotton field after heavy rain forced them to discontinue the pesticide spraying operation.
