Mumbai, Feb 11 (UNI) The benchmark index of Bombay Stock Exchange

(BSE) fell for third straight session on Monday by 151.45 points to

end negative at 36,395.03 due to sell-off in all the counters

tracking weaker cues from Asian peers.

The Nifty of National Stock Exchange (NSE) too declined by 54.80

points to 10,88.80.

The equity market remained in red throughout the day, as the Sensex

recorded day's high at 36,588.41 and low at 36,300.03 points.

The Nifty registered day's high and low at 10,930.90 and 10,857.10
