The Indian benchmark indices registered their biggest single-day fall in nearly two years, thereby settling in the red for the seventh straight session on February 24 as Russia invaded Ukraine in Europe's 'darkest hours' since World War II.

February month F&O expiry and Brent crude oil prices crossing the crucial $100 per barrel for the first time in more than seven years after Russian President Vladimir Putin authorised a special military operation in Ukraine, spooked market participants on Dalal Street.

Global stocks and US bond yields, too, dived on Thursday, while the dollar, gold and oil prices rocketed higher as Russian forces fired missiles at several Ukrainian cities and landed troops on its south coast, reported Reuters.
