The 30-share BSE Sensex after a better start, rose further to touch the day's high of 29,069.13 in early trade. However,
it slipped into the red as selling pressure gathered momentum after the railway budget. It dipped below the 29,000-mark to
hit a low of 28,693.82 before settling 261.34 points, or 0.90 per cent, down at 28,746.65. Today's drop is the biggest daily fall for the Sensex since the 490.52-point crash on February 9.
