    Gold prices declined by Rs 70 to Rs 26,350 per 10 grams at the bullion market today owing to slackened demand from jewellers even as the precious metal strengthened overseas.

    Silver, however, rose further by Rs 50 to Rs 36,050 per kg on sustained buying by industrial units.

    Bullion merchants said subdued demand from jewellers and retailers at prevailing levels mainly led to the decline in gold prices.
