(Reuters) - Indian shares closed over 1 percent lower for a second consecutive session on Thursday, reflecting losses in broader markets where fears of a slowdown in global economy soured sentiment.

The benchmark BSE Sensex closed down 1.05 percent at 35,513.71.

The broader NSE Nifty ended 1.11 percent lower at 10,667.25.

Eicher Motors Ltd ended a second consecutive session lower on the back of disappointing December sales data.

Only nine out of 50 stocks on the country’s Nifty finished the session higher, with Bharti Infratel Ltd closing 2.8 percent up.
