Kolkata - Maoists in West Bengal killed a Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader and his bodyguard after dragging them out of a bus.

Police said Anil Mahato, 45, the local committee secretary of the CPI-M at Shilda in West Midnapore district and his AK-47-equipped guard Dinesh Baskey, 34, were gunned down by the rebels Tuesday evening, in one of the major attacks since the Assembly elections in the Maoist-affected district in April.

The incident occurred at Joypur in the district, about 230 km from here.

Mahato was provided an armed guard after a bid on his life in February.

The CPI-M has called for a dawn-to-dusk shutdown in the Binpur Assembly segment of the district Wednesday.
