Sensex dives 414 pts amid concerns over rising COVID cases

Benchmark Sensex on Tuesday tumbled 414 points to settle near the day's lowest level due to a broad-based selloff as an uncertainty about economic revival amid mounting COVID cases in the country hung heavy on investor minds.

Dropping 855 points from the day's high, the 30-share BSE Sensex closed 413.89 points or 1.20 per cent lower at 33,956.69.

Likewise, the NSE Nifty ended 120.80 points or 1.19 per cent down at 10,046.65.

In contrast to Indian equities, global stocks were broadly upbeat as the lifting of lockdowns in many countries raised investor hopes of a relatively quick global economic recovery.

On the Sensex chart, ICICI Bank was the top laggard, falling around 3 per cent, followed by Bharti Airtel, HDFC Bank, Bajaj Finance, Kotak Bank and Axis Bank.

On the other hand, IndusInd Bank, Sun Pharma, M&M and HDFC were among the gainers.

Of the 30 shares of Sensex, 21 closed in the red and 9 in the green.

Sectorally, BSE telecom, bankex, energy, oil and gas, consumer durables and finance indices fell up to 3.06 per cent; while healthcare, realty and FMCG indices ended with gains.

Broader midcap and smallcap indices fell up to 1 per cent.

Analysts believe domestic market succumbed to profit-booking at higher levels as concerns over rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country outweighed the optimism over reopening of the economy.

The number of infections in India spiked to 2,66,598, while the death toll rose to 7,466, according to the health ministry.

Pakistan resorts to intense shelling on LoC in Poonch

Pakistan resorted to intense, unprovoked mortar shelling and firing on Tuesday on the line of control (LoC) to violate ceasefire in J&K's Poonch district.

Colonel Devender Anand said, "At about 6.30 a.m. today Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and intense shelling with mortars along the LoC in Mankote sector of Poonch district.

"Indian army is retaliating befittingly".

This is the second ceasefire violation by Pakistan in less than 12 hours.

Yesterday, around 7.45 p.m. Pakistan used intense shelling with mortars to violate ceasefire in Khari Karmara sector of Poonch district.

Bilateral firing exchanges are now going on between the two sides in Mankote sector as locals remain huddled with fear inside their homes because shells fired from across the LoC often result in civilian casualties and damage to their homes and agricultural fields.

Yesterday, army's disposal squad defused two unexploded 122-mm mortar shells fired by Pakistan in Balakote sector thereby preventing a tragedy that could have resulted in civilian casualties.
