Mumbai: The rupee took more blows on Thursday as it slipped 16 paise to a fresh six and a half month low of 65.88 against the dollar that gained clout overseas on talk of a US rate hike and the prospect of monetary stimulus pullout.

The US Fed's policy decision and commentary led to foreign investors heading to the exit door in Mumbai.

On Thursday, the rupee plunged 27 paise to end at 65.72.

Meanwhile, the benchmark Sensex fell further by 44.27 points, or 0.14 per cent, to 31,115.54 in the opening trade on Thursday.
