Indian stock market news

The Indian stock market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, extended losses to trade sharply lower on Tuesday, dragged by weak global cues.

At 1:25 pm, the Sensex was trading 690.99 points, or 0.94%, lower at 72,708.79, while the Nifty 50 dropped 183.95 points, or 0.83%, to 22,088.55.

Heavy selling was witnessed in most sectors on dampened risk appetite of investors. The Iran-Israel conflict that fuels tensions in the oil-rich Middle-East region, rising US dollar and the US Treasury yields, and unabated selling by Foreign Institutional Investors (FII) also led to the crash in markets.
