Mumbai: The BSE Sensex fell by 185 points in early session today due to losses in realty, power, PSU, metal and infrastructure stocks amid weak Asian cues. Besides, investors were cautious ahead of September quarter GDP data to be released later in the day.
Offloading of positions by participants with today being the last trading session of November series contracts in the derivatives segment pulled down the index, brokers said.

Among laggards Kotak Bank, Cipla, Adani Ports, ONGC, M&M, Reliance Industries, Coal India, Axis Bank, Hind Unilever, Tata Motors, Bharti Airtel, HDFC Ltd, Tata Steel and Lupin dropped up to 1.71 per cent.
