The Indian rupee extended slide against the U.S. dollar in evening deals on Thursday, amid weakness in regional stocks.
The benchmark S&P BSE Sensex ended the session down 201.62 points or 0.75 percent at 26,838.14, while the broader CNX Nifty index dropped 59.45 points or 0.73 percent to 8,111.75.
The Indian markets declined, tracking weak Asian cues, after the Fed hinted at a possible interest rate hike in December.
The rupee lost 0.44 percent to more than 3-week low of 65.255 against the greenback, compared to 64.968 hit late New York Wednesday. The next possible support for the rupee may be located around the 66.00 zone.
