Sensex ends lower, cement stocks drag

REUTERS - Indian shares closed lower on Thursday as investors booked profits in cement stocks after a stellar rally this week and amid caution ahead of the U.S. payrolls data, which is expected to give a better idea about the Federal Reserve’s likely policy stance.

Among the cement stocks, UltraTech Cement fell 1.8 percent after rising about 4 percent over the last three trading sessions, while ACC Ltd closed 0.5 percent lower after a gain of 3 percent in the last four sessions.
