06/12/2018 16:42
Indian benchmarks extended losses for the third session on Thursday by declining over 572 points on heavy selling in IT and auto stocks amid weak global cues. Sentiments took a hit after broader Asian markets weakened, following a Canadian authority arrested a top executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei for extradition to the United States, feeding fears of a fresh flare-up in tensions between the two superpowers. China on Thursday urged Canada and the United States to “clarify” the reason a senior Huawei executive had been detained in Vancouver.
