AGRI WRAP-Indian oilseeds, soyoil end up; sugar, chana fall
MUMBAI Oct 5 (Reuters) - Indian oilseed and soyoil futures extended gains on Friday, driven by a rise in overseas prices and an improvement in edible oil demand due to festivals, though an estimated rise in soybean output and weak oilmeal exports limited the upside.

* In the Delhi spot market, chana fell 14 rupees to 4,436 rupees per 100 kg.
