A similar trend was witnessed on the NSE too, where the share crashed to hit a low of Rs 158.70, down 34.01 percent over its last close, which is also its 52-week low level.

With lenders deciding not to extend any emergency funds, Jet Airways on Wednesday announced a temporary suspension of operations.

Meanwhile, in a statement early on Thursday, Jet Airways' lenders said they were reasonably hopeful of a successful bidding process for the stake sale.

The announcement came early morning ahead of market opening.

Market analysts said the decline in the stock was largely a knee-jerk reaction of the temporary suspension of operations for the struggling airline.
