The Indian benchmark indices snapped a two-day gaining streak to end Wednesday's session nearly 1 percent lower. The BSE Sensex fell 555 points to close at 59,189 amid weak cues from global markets as well as rising power and gas prices. The Nifty closed below the 17,650-mark at 17,646, down 176 points. 

Hindalco, SBI Life, IndusInd Bank, JSW Steel, and Tata Steel were among the major losers on the Nifty. Tata Consumer, ONGC, UPL, Britannia, and HDFC Bank were among the major gainers.
