Stocks plunged sharply on the Indian bourses on Tuesday as investors indulged in heavy selling right through the session.

Weakness in global markets amid renewed economic worries triggered the sell-off.

The Sensex ended at 19,031.96 (provisional) with a loss of almost 300 points or 1.55%.

The Nifty closed at 5767.50, down 87.25 points or 1.49%.

Automobile, capital goods and oil stocks declined sharply.

PSU, metal, healthcare, bank, realty and power stocks also mostly ended notably lower.

FMCG stocks ended on a mixed note.

Select IT stocks posted strong gains.

Midcap and smallcap stocks tumbled once again.

The market breadth was very weak.
