Mumbai/IBNS: Amid the fear over the Novel Coronavirus outbreak, the Indian market crashed on Thursday with BSE Sensex going down by over 1,800 in little more than an hour following the opening bell.

As per the last update, BSE Sensex went down by 1,868.98 points.

NIFTY is down by 549.65 points.

The fall took place after the Indian government suspended all visas till Apr 15.

Only diplomatic, official, United Nations/International Organisations, employment and project visas are exempted.

As of Wednesday, 67 people in India have contracted the virus with a large number of them belonging to the tourist group from Italy.
