Chennai: A CBI court on Tuesday convicted a Senior Manager of Indian Overseas Bank and three others in a bank fraud case leading to a loss of Rs 30.8 lakhs to institution.

CBI has registered a case in 2002 against the bank official and four others on the allegations that during 1996-2002 they had entered into a criminal conspiracy to cheat the public sector bank at Neyveli, a CBI release said.
