Indian stock markets fell on Tuesday led by the slump in the shares of NTPC after the government announced that it will sell 5% stake in the country’s largest power producer NTPC at Rs 168 per share to raise about Rs 7,000 crore. The sentiments were also brought down by the weaker Asian markets and US stock futures which tumbled in the early trade today after North Korea fired a missile over northern Japan, fuelling worries of fresh tension between Washington and Pyongyang. Within minutes of trading markets extended losses with the benchmark Sensex sliding over 250 points to the day’s low of 31,485.3.
