This was the fifth consecutive day of fall.

Forex dealers said apart from increased demand for the US currency from importers, foreign fund outflows and rising global crude oil prices amid dollar’s gains against other currencies overseas put pressure on the rupee.

The domestic unit had lost 7 paise to close at 66.87 in Tuesday’s trade.

Meanwhile, benchmark BSE Sensex tumbled by 210.46 points or 0.81 per cent to 25,563.15 in early trade.
