Closing Bell It’s curtains on this session for the market. And it has been a marginal pullback in the last hour from its low points. A fall in crude prices, which slipped to around USD 79 per barrel is likely to have impacted the movement.

IndusInd Bank, HDFC, HPCL and Indiabulls Housing were the top gainers, while Sun Pharma and Asian Paints lost the most.
