 Sensex, Nifty end lower for second day
| Reuters

Indian shares ended lower for a second consecutive session on Tuesday, as losses in lenders hit by a Morgan Stanley downgrade and drugmakers hurt by U.S. Food and Drug Administration's regulatory action offset gains in index heavyweight ITC Ltd.

The broader Nifty ended 0.1 percent lower at 9,121.50, while the benchmark Sensex also closed 0.1 percent lower at 29,485.45.
