Sensex ends higher; financial stocks gain

(Reuters) - Indian shares rose on Thursday as state-run lenders rallied late in the session after the government sought approval from parliament to inject 800 billion rupees ($12.62 billion) into the sector as part of its recapitalisation plan.

The benchmark BSE Sensex closed up 0.52 percent at 33,969.64.

The broader NSE Nifty ended 0.59 percent higher at 10,504.80.
