sensex today: Political uncertainty, global oil price drags Sensex down almost 250 points


NEW DELHI: Equity markets saw a dramatic fall in the last hour of trading as Sensex finished 238 points below previous closing mark at 35,149.12. The broader 50-share NSE Nifty too lost more than half a per cent to slip below the 10,700-mark.

The markets lost for the third straight day as political uncertainty in Karnataka kept lingering on despite BJP’s B S Yeddyurappa swearing in as the chief minister of the state. Moreover, brent crude oil price has now inched above the $80 per barrel- mark, stoking negative sentiments among investors.
