The Nifty ended in the red on June 11, suffering its biggest fall in the last three weeks.
Weak global cues, the Supreme Court's comments on adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues and concerns over another lockdown extension impacted investor sentiment.
The Sensex ended the day with a loss of 709 points, or 2.07 percent, at 33,538.37. The Nifty settled 214 points, or 2.12 percent, lower at 9,902.
BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices outperformed benchmarks as they closed with losses of 1.41 percent and 1.04 percent, respectively.
"Global cues will continue to dictate the market trend. Nifty should hold 9,850 for any rebound, else profit-taking would continue. We suggest limiting the leveraged trades and keeping existing positions hedged," said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking.
