New Delhi, Sep 24 (ANI): Equity benchmark indices crashed by nearly 3 per cent on Thursday following a rout in US stocks overnight while investors also battled worries over resurging COVID-19 cases in European cities. US stocks cracked after several Fed officials suggested the US economy was worse than the market was pricing in. Besides, countries including the United Kingdom, France, Spain and the Netherlands are seeing re-emergence of virus hotspots that may lead to fresh curbs on movement and businesses. The BSE S&P Sensex closed 1,115 points or 2.96 per cent lower at 36,554 while the Nifty 50 tumbled by 326 points or 2.93 per cent at 10,806.
