BENGALURU (Reuters) - Indian shares ended slightly lower on Thursday, with IT stocks such as Infosys Ltd dragging the indexes, as investors awaited fresh triggers.

Shares of IT firms accounted for more than half of the losses on the NSE index. Infosys fell 2.7 percent, while Tata Consultancy Services Ltd lost 2 percent.

ICICI Bank declined nearly 3 percent and was the top drag on the NSE index.
