Mumbai, India (BBN)-Indian rupee lost 9 paise to 66.41 against the US dollar in early trade on Thursday at the Interbank Foreign Exchange due to appreciation in the US currency overseas.
Besides, a fresh demand for the US currency from importers and banks also weighed on the domestic currency, forex dealers said, reports the PTI.
However, early gains in domestic stock markets capped the rupee losses to some extent, they said.
