16/05/2018 16:56
The Indian equities ended lower on Wednesday, mirroring weakness in the Asian market, as investor remained wary amid continued uncertainty over the formation of government in Karnataka. Adding to it, weakness in the index heavyweights such as, Reliance Industries, ICICI Bank, SBI, Hero MotoCorp, Adani Ports and HDFC Group, also weighed on market sentiment. Among the individual stocks, Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications (RCom) continued losing streak for the second session on Wednesday and fell over 15 per cent after bankruptcy court admits Ericsson's plea against the company.
