Sensex down 67 pts in early trade on global cues

The wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty also drifted by 21.85 points, or 0.43 per cent, to 5,011.20.

Other weak counters, which dragged the Sensex lower were SBI down 0.13 per cent to Rs 2,177.90, HDFC Bank lower 0.57 per cent to Rs 1,68.90 and ICICI Bank dipped 0.42 per cent to Rs 821.90.
