Mumbai: Indian stocks were virtually on fire leading a key index to breach 25,000 points mark, as Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party took a big early lead in India's national election vote count.

Around 10.50 a.m., the sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange was ruling at a never before high of 25,375.63 points against the previous close of 23,905.60 points, to log a single-day gain of 871.39 points, or 3.65 percent.

Analysts said the markets were afire expecting a stable government under BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, who is also seen as a industry-friendly leader. Every industry-specific index was trading at record highs, exchange data showed.

The 50-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange also surged in a similar fashion.
According to officials at the markets watchdog Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), a close watch will be kept on market movements Friday during the counting of votes to prevent any disorderly trading.
