    Among the top gainers from the S&P CNX Nifty stocks in trade today were Sun Pharma, Ultratech Cement, Larsen and Toubro and Kotak Mahindra.

    Shares of DLF continued their decline for a second day in a row following allegations of undue favours extended by the company to Congress President Sonia Gandhi's Son-in-law Robert Vadra.
