Stock market benchmark Sensex on Monday declined by 141 points at the close after a volatile session, dragged down by profit-booking in select IT, banking, pharma and FMCG stocks mainly in the closing session. The 30-share BSE Sensex settled at 37,531.98 points, down by 141.33 points or 0.38 per cent as 24 of its components posted losses. Broader NSE Nifty dropped by 48.35 points or 0.43 per cent to close at 11,126.40 as leading IT, pharma, financials, and oil stocks retreated due to profit booking. Bucking the trend, shares of Yes Bank rallied over 8 per cent on prospects of fresh investments in the company.
