The Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex fell by over 137 points in early trade on fresh selling by foreign funds, after reopening of the stock market on Friday, a day after the shattering terrorist attack in Mumbai.

The 30-share index, which had gained 331.19 points in the previous session on November 26, moved down by 137.54 at 8,889.18 points.

Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange's Nifty moved down by 61.95 points, or 2.25 per cent at 2,690.30.

Stock brokers said fall in share prices was mostly attributed to increased capital outflows by foreign funds after the deadly terrorists attack in the financial hub in Mumbai.

Among major losers, which dragged the Sensex down were HDFC Ltd, Larsen and Toubro, Maruti, Mahidnra and Mahindra, Reliance Infra, Ranbaxy, Tata Steel and Tata Consultancy.

However, Indian Hotels stocks after opening in the positive zone was trading down over 12 per cent.
