India Sugar down in north India due to trade halt in Punjab, Haryana.

Prices of sugar rose in the key wholesale markets of Mumbai due to an increase in demand as Maharashtra markets opened after a three-day holiday. Prices of the sweetener, however, fell in the key wholesale markets of Delhi as demand was hit due to police blockades set up in Punjab and Haryana to quell unrest ahead of the announcement of the sentence against self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
