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.
