ICICI Bank (ICBK.NS) fell 4.5 percent, while HDFC Bank(HDBK.NS) was down 3.5 percent.

Tata Motors (TAMO.NS) fell 6.1 percent after the automaker's managing director, Karl Slym, died when he fell from a hotel room in Bangkok in what police said on Monday could be a possible suicide.

The Nifty was down 2.05 percent at 2:56 p.m., heading for its biggest fall since a 3.8 percent fall on September 3 when domestic shares were hit by worries about military tensions in Syria.
