Mumbai, June 9 (ANI):The Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark index, Sensex, on Monday came down by 513 points in early trade on selling in heavyweight stocks.
It stood at 15,058.98 points after a 513.20 points fall in the first five minutes of trade in line amid weakening global markets and inflationary conditions at home.
