A report from Capital Stake stated, “The rise in political tension and further depreciation of Pakistani Rupee against the US Dollar continued to haunt investors.”

Moreover, a report from Topline Securities said a lack of contribution was witnessed as investors needed clarity over political and economic conditions ahead.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's rupee closed near the 230 level against the US dollar in the inter-bank market.

Sectors driving the benchmark KSE-100 index downwards included banking (107.83 points), fertiliser (43.52 points) and technology and communication (27.09 points).
