The BSE 30-share barometer resumed better and rallied further to a high of 28,455.32, up by 263 points, on sustained capital inflows amid Asian Development Bank's (ADB) painting a positive outlook of India's economic growth.

However, a brief period of heavy selling mainly in auto, banking and IT shares at the fag-end pulled it down to a low of 28,130.09, before settling at 28,161.72, showing a fall of 30.30 points or 0.11 percent. Tuesday's fall takes the Sensex to its lowest closing in over nine weeks since January 16.

Similarly, the 50-issue NSE Nifty moved erratically in a range of 8,627.75 and 8,535.85 before ending at 8,542.95, a net fall of 7.95 points or 0.09 percent.

In five straight day, the NSE index has shed about 180 points. Traders said volatility was mainly due to rolling over of positions in the futures and options segment from the near month March to April series
