Indian shares snap 3 sessions of gains on Korea tensions

Sept 4 (Reuters) - Indian shares snapped three sessions of gains on Monday as investors sought refuge in safe havens as tensions in the Korean peninsula escalated following North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sunday.

The BSE index fell 0.6 percent to 31,702.25, while the broader NSE index ended 0.62 percent lower at 9,912.85.

The NSE’s volatility index, the domestic equivalent of the VIX fear gauge, rose as much as 19.53 percent in its biggest intraday percent gain since May 18.
