The 30-share index, which had lost 81.61 points on Thursday, fell by another 144.44 points, or 0.66 percent, to 21,630.17 in morning trade with all the sectoral indices led by banking, realty and metals trading in the negative zone, with losses up to 1.31 percent.
The broader Nifty of the National Stock Exchange too moved down by 36.05 points, or 0.56 percent, to 6,457.05. Brokers said continued selling by foreign funds and retail investors largely in tune with a weakening trend on other Asian bourses on dismal Chinese economic data and overnight losses on Wall Street on flaring Ukraine tensions mainly dampened the sentiment.
In other Asian markets, Hong Kong's Hang Seng fell by 0.66 percent, while Japan's Nikkei moved down by 2.73 percent in morning trade on Friday. US Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.41 percent in Thursday's trade.
