Mumbai: The BSE Sensex slumped over 336 points while NSE Nifty slipped below the 9,800-mark in early trade today.

The slump in markets was apparently because of the simmering tensions between US and North Korea.

A ripple effect was seen across Asian markets which declined up to 1.2 per cent. India was no exception.

The BSE 30-share barometer tanked 336.46 points, or 1.06 per cent, to 31,194.87.

It has tumbled 794.08 points in the previous four sessions.
