Thirty three stocks on the 50-scrip NSE Nifty closed in the negative zone
The BSE Sensex fell 156 points to close at 35,387 on Wednesday. National Stock Exchange (NSE) benchmark index Nifty fell 60 points to settle at 10,741. Concerns on government formation in Karnataka, where no party got a clear majority in election results on Tuesday, coupled with weakness in other Asian markets kept Sensex and Nifty under pressure during Wednesday's session, say analysts. Declines were led by a selloff witnessed in banking and energy stocks, with the NSE sectoral indices ending 1 and 1.3 per cent lower respectively.
