(Reuters) - Indian shares snapped a three-session winning streak to end slightly lower on Tuesday as investors booked profits in recent outperformers such as ITC Ltd, but energy shares rose on lower global oil prices.

The benchmark BSE Sensex fell 0.04 percent to 31,209.79, while the broader NSE Nifty ended 0.02 percent lower at 9,613.30.

Cigarette maker ITC Ltd, which hit a record high on Monday, ended 1.5 percent lower, while Reliance Industries Ltd rose nearly 3 percent.
