Thiruvananthapuram: As the 48-hour nationwide trade strike entered its second day on Wednesday, angry protesters stormed into the cabin of a State Bank of India (SBI) manager here and vandalised it

"At around 10.15 a.m., angry protesters came into my cabin and asked if I did not know that today is a protest day. I told them that although we are open, banking operations were not taking place. Then they threw the computer and other properties on my table," Santosh Karunakaran, the manager, told the media here.

This branch is located near Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's office and also the temporary union office of the protesters.

The bank has lodged an official complaint and the police have launched a probe.
