Led by Reliance Industries and Infosys, the BSE benchmark Sensex touched another 32-month high on Wednesday, rising 155 points as it continued its northward journey for the seventh successive session.

Equity analysts said sustained capital inflow and healthy advance tax numbers helped the market to scale a fresh high.

The Bombay Stock Exchange's 30-share barometer closed the day higher by 155.15 points, or 0.80 per cent, at 19,502.11 — its best close since January 17, 2008.

The wide-based National Stock Exchange 50-share Nifty breached the 5,800 mark and ended 1.1 per cent higher at 5,860.95.
