Shares at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) fell by more than 500 points on Thursday, with analysts attributing it to delays in the completion of the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) ninth review and rising political uncertainty.

The benchmark KSE-100 index closed at 41,179.76 points, down 557.86 points or 1.34 per cent.
