MUMBAI: The benchmark BSE Sensex fell almost 106 points in early trade today weighed down by losses in healthcare, IT and consumer durables amid a mixed trend in Asian markets.

The 30-share index fell 105.68 points, or 0.41 per cent, to 25,413.54.

The gauge had lost 284.54 points in the previous session on Friday.

On similar lines, NSE Nifty edged lower by 28.50 points, or 0.36 per cent, to 7,733.45.

Brokers said profit-booking in recent gainers amid the prevailing uncertainty over passage of the GST Bill dampened sentiment.

Besides, a mixed movement at other Asian markets and weekend losses in the US and European markets triggered selling, they said.

Elsewhere in Asia, Japan's Nikkei was down 1.70 per cent while Hong Kong's Hang Seng was up 0.28 per cent in morning trade today.

The US Dow Jones ended 2.10 per cent lower in Friday's trade.
