Business Standard/ 08 Apr 17 | 08:31 AM

The benchmark Sensex dropped 221 points to close at a one-week low of 29,706.61, while the Nifty ended below the 9,200-mark on Friday after the US air strikes on Syria roiled global markets. 

The US launched a massive strike on a Syrian air base in retaliation to a chemical attack on civilians, stoking fears of a geopolitical flare-up.
