Equities at Pakistan's Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) fell sharply on Thursday as the investor confidence was jolted by rumors of cash withdrawals from smaller banks.
The benchmark KSE 100-Index slumped by 517.25 points, or 1.63 percent, to 31,239.04.

During Thursday's trading session, the key index touched an intraday high of 31,760.80 points as against an intraday low of 31, 026.30 points.
The Karachi bourse was filled with rumors of cash withdrawal from smaller banks after closure of a bank and its brokerage firm.
