Forex dealers said weakness in Asian currencies against the US dollar and demand for the greenback from importers put pressure on the rupee.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 127.22 points, or 0.68%, to 18,666.14.

The domestic unit had ended down by 8 paise at Rs. 52.72 per dollar in the previous session on heavy dollar demand from importers.
