Stock Market LIVE Updates: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 suffered losses in choppy trade on Thursday, the last session of the holiday-truncated trading week. Losses in financial, IT and automobile shares pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in oil & gas and power scrips lent some support. Broader markets also weakened, with the midcap and smallcap indices tumbling 1.4 percent each. Shares in One97 Communications — the parent of digital services platform Paytm – listed at a discount on BSE and NSE. The stock of Sapphire Foods – an operator of KFC and Pizza Hut outlets in the country – debuted at a premium.
