Mumbai: The Sensex fell on Friday, snapping a four-day rise, as profit-taking hit recent outperformers such as ICICI Bank, while investor sentiment was also hit after dozens of erroneous orders triggered a brief halt in the Nifty.
ICICI Bank shares fell 1.7 per cent, while mortgage lender HDFC fell 5.08 per cent after Carlyle Group sold a 3.7 per cent stake for $841 million.
The NSE was brought to a brief halt on Friday after Emkay Global Financial Services placed dozens of erroneous orders worth more than $125 million.
The BSE index provisionally fell 0.73 per cent, while the 50-share Nifty fell 0.7 per cent.
