Sensex closes at lowest in over two weeks

MUMBAI (Reuters) - The BSE Sensex and Nifty fell more than one percent on Wednesday, closing at their lowest in more than two weeks, as uncertainty over the fate of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill and global volatility following devaluation of the Chinese yuan weighed on blue chips.
