KARACHI: Pakistan's stock market closed higher on Tuesday, boosted by higher volumes and a recovery in the banking sector, dealers said.

Karachi Stock Exchange’s (KSE) benchmark 100-share index ended 1.15 per cent, or 201.37 points, higher at 17,693.37 points.

In the currency market, the rupee ended weaker at 98.13/98.18 against the dollar, compared to Monday’s close of 98.10/98.16.
