Thrissur: A policeman was injured Monday when the convict he was escorting to a court hit him with handcuffed hands and tried to escape as he was reportedly not allowed to buy a beedi, police said.

The incident occurred when the civil police officer Prabin was accompanying the convict Ramachandran sentenced to 23 years of imprisonment from the central jail in Thiruvananthapuram to a court in Chalakkudy near here, the police said.
