Jhargram (WB): Hours after Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's visit to Lalgarh, suspected Maoists today killed a CPI-M student's wing leader at nearby Binpur in West Midnapore district.

Partha Biswas (26), Secretary of Students' Federation of India (SFI), Belpahari Zonal Committee, was shot at by six suspected Maoists, who came on three motorcycles, at Malabati village at about 6 pm, police said.

Biswas, who suffered bullet injuries in head and chest, was about to enter his home after washing hands in a pond when the attack took place, they said, adding he died on way to Jhargram Hospital.

A day earlier Maoists had held a meeting in the area demanding withdrawl of paramilitary forces, halting of 'Operation Green Hunt' and condemning Chidambaram's visit to Lalgarh, the police said.

The ultras had asked all villagers to tow this line.
