Surgical strikes across the LoC spook the sensex

After witnessing a sharp fall on Thursday due to geo-political concerns, markets rebounded and ended flat on the first day of October series despite weak global cues.
The S&P BSE Sensex ended up 38 points to settle at 27,866 and the Nifty50 settled 20 points higher at 8,611. In the broader market, both the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices outperformed the front-liners with gains of 2% each.

Top gainers from the Sensex pack included GAIL, M&M, ONGC, Power Grid and Tata Steel, all surging between 1%-3%. On the losing side, Cipla, ITC, Coal India, Bharti Airtel and HUL slipped between 1%-3%.
