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. (The Hindu)

    what makes you think Chennai/India is poorer. SL lives on borrowed money, it is not an independent economy like India.
    and tell me which rich nation is going to allow BOC to set up a branch

    Happenings in Tamil Nadu are with the secret blessings of Karunanithi in order to destabalize Jayalalitha's government.

    How come Bodu Bala Sena is silent about these matters?

    SL Thursday, 07 February 2013 04:15 PM

    Otherwise you would have attacked it before?

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 09 February 2013 12:38 AM

    Why have they attacked innocent employees? What can they do to this conflict? Attackers should deal the matter with Central govt.

    do you think BBS represents the GOSL

    raviraj Friday, 08 February 2013 06:04 AM

    just like the assault on the Indian sculptor in Moneragala was with the blessings of the GOSL
