MUMBAI: The muscle-flexing by the US and North Korea ratcheted up global worries and made investors a lot more anxious Thursday, with the Sensex crashing 267 points to a one-month low and the Nifty below 9,900.

Both snapped back into loss for the fourth straight day.

The Korean peninsula pot kept boiling as North Korea upped the ante, defying the US President's "fire and fury" warning and threatening to strike its military base in Guam.

The markets have already been downbeat reeling under the regulatory clampdown after Sebi's Monday directive imposing trading restrictions on suspected shell companies.

After opening lower, the Sensex recovered, but only to slip again to hit a low of 31,422.80 before settling down 266.51 points, or 0.84 per cent, at 31,531.33. The level was last seen on July 7 when it ended at 31,360.63.

The gauge had lost 527.57 points in the previous three sessions.

The Nifty ended the day at 9,820.25, down 87.80 points, or 0.89 per cent.

Lower-than-expected earnings by Tata Motors, Eicher Motors and a few others soured risk appetite. Tata Motors emerged as the top loser among Sensex constituents by slumping 8.60 per cent after the company's June quarter earnings failed to meet market expectations.

"We believe that it is a moderation within the bull phase due to geo-political tension... Additionally, domestic confidence has fallen given Sebi's action over shell companies while a slowdown in business growth will lead to downgrade in earnings forecast for the next 1-2 quarters," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.

Sentiment remained depressed, largely in sync with weak Asian markets and a lower opening in Europe. Market has been going through a consolidation phase after hitting life highs last week.

Other Sensex losers were Dr Reddy's, Sun Pharma, Cipla, SBI, Lupin and PowerGrid, falling up to 4.77 per cent.

However, software exporters such as Infosys, Wipro and TCS emerged unscathed with gains, after the rupee weakened against the dollar, helping the BSE IT index close in the green by rising 0.63 per cent.

The BSE realty index tanked the most, plunging 5.12 per cent. Healthcare, auto and power followed.

Small-cap and mid-cap indices too fell by 2.90 per cent and 2.64 per cent, respectively, on dilution of exposure by retail investors.
