Mumbai: Equity benchmark Sensex plummeted 1,170 points on Monday, dragged by losses in Reliance Industries, Bajaj Finance and Kotak Bank.

The 30-share BSE index ended 1,170.12 points or 1.96 per cent lower at 58,465.89. Similarly, the NSE Nifty fell 348.25 points or 1.96 per cent to 17,416.55.

Other laggards included Bajaj Finance, Bajaj Finserv, NTPC, SBI and Titan.

On the other hand, Bharti Airtel, Asian Paints, PowerGrid and IndusInd Bank were the gainers.
