The Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark, Sensex, on Monday closed by over 120 points higher on aggressive buying by funds in blue-chip stocks, led by oil and automobile segments.

The 30-share sensitive index gained 120.53 points at 11,312.99 on massive buying by funds, triggered by firming Asian markets and easing crude oil prices in global markets.

It touched a high of 11,330.30 points earlier in the day.

Similarly, the National Stock Exchange index, Nifty, shot up by 38.78 points at 3,313.10 points after touching the day's high of 3,317.80.
