The 30-share index ended down 238.86 points, or 0.74 per cent, at 32,237.88 after hitting a low of 32,194.58. The gauge had lost 98.43 points on Wednesday.

The Nifty slumped by 67.85 points, or 0.67 per cent, but managed to close above the 10,000-mark at 10,013.65 after touching a low of 9,998.25.
