Indian benchmark indices sustained their downward trajectory for the third consecutive session, influenced by weak cues from global markets, particularly due to escalating tensions in the Middle East.

Out of the 30 stocks constituting the BSE Sensex, only eight ended the day with gains. Notably, Hindustan Unilever, Titan, HDFC Bank, Maruti Suzuki India, and ITC were among the top performers, whereas Infosys, IndusInd Bank, Bajaj Finserv, Wipro, and HCL Tech exerted downward pressure on the index.
