Equity indices snap 4-day losing streak, Sensex up 428 pts

New Delhi : Domestic equity benchmark indices snapped their four straight sessions of losses and settled fairly higher on Thursday, primarily due to value buying.

Barring Nifty metal and PSU banks, all other sectoral indices closed in the green on Thursday, NSE data showed.
