Sensex Mumbai, June 9 (ANI): Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex on Tuesday recorded a surge of over 461 points on aggressive buying by funds and regained 15,000-level, which it lost during Monday’s steep fall.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s comments on economic growth triggered hefty buying interest on bourses.

Singh, while winding up a debate in Parliament on Tuesday, said that the economy could grow by 8-9 per cent rate despite global slowdown.

With funds turning aggressive buyers, the barometer, which opened remarkably lower, shot up 461.08 points to close close at 15,127.00.

Wider National Stock Exchange index Nifty also spurted by 121.05 points at 4,550.95. (ANI)
