Fresh capital outflows from foreign funds affected the value of the rupee against the dollar, a forex dealer said.

The rupee resumed lower at 59.95 as against the last weekend's level of 59.93 per dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) market and moved in a range of 59.90 and 60.01 per dollar before quoting at 60.00 at 10am.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex continued to decline and was quoted below 25,000-level at 24,991.69 at 1000 hours, showing a loss of 32.66 points, or 0.13%, from its last weekend's level.
