August 20, 2022 00:00:00

The Indian equities indices ended over 1 per cent lower on Friday weighed by a fall in market heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL) and financial stocks, reports indianexpress.com.

The S&P BSE Sensex crashed 651.85 points (1.08 per cent) to end at 59,646.15 while the Nifty 50 slumped 198.05 points (1.10 per cent) to settle at 17,758.45.

Both the indices had opened on a flat note with some positive bias earlier in the day but they soon declined during the late morning deals and remained in the red throughout the session.

During the intraday trade, the Sensex hit a low of 59,474.57 and the Nifty touched 17,710.75.

Only three stocks out of 30 Sensex constituents ended in the green. IndusInd Bank, Bajaj twins -- Bajaj Finserv and Bajaj Finance, Tata Steel, State Bank of India, Maruti Suzuki India, RIL, NTPC, Hindustan Unilever and Mahindra & Mahindra were the top losers on Friday.
