The spokesman said that another six police officers had been injured in the night attack on checkpoints in Ziraki village, located in the province's Dar-e-Suf district, according to the 1TV.
Three Taliban members were killed and four others were wounded during the clashes, the official added.
Afghanistan has long been suffering from an unstable security situation. The government has been fighting the Taliban, which has been waging a war against Kabul for almost two decades, and the Daesh terrorist group, which has been operating in Afghanistan since 2015.
