BoC branch attacked in Chennai
An unidentified group on Thursday afternoon ransacked the Bank of Ceylon branch in Egmore and attacked its employees. The attack is suspected to be orchestrated by a Tamil group in protest against the visit of Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapaksa to India on Friday.
The group barged into the Bank complex around 1.30 p.m. and attacked the police personnel on duty. While some damaged the guard's room other rushed to the first floor of the branch and vandalised furniture and other items. They attacked some bank staff including a trainee who is a city college student, police sources added.
