Mumbai, Dec 2 (PTI) Continuing its rising streak for the third straight day, the BSE benchmark Sensex rose over 70 points in early trade today on sustained buying by funds as the economy grew by a higher-than-expected 4.8 per cent in the September quarter amid a mixed trend at other Asian bourses.

Stocks of banking, realty, capital goods and healthcare sectors led the rally. On similar lines, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up by 24.55 points, or 0.40 per cent, to 6,200.65.
