Shares of Jet Airways today tanked more than 4 per cent, eroding Rs 197 crore from its market capitalisation amid investor concerns whether its stake-sale deal with Abu-Dhabi based carrier Etihad would materialise.

According to media reports, fresh hurdles have come up in the Jet-Etihad deal. There were also reports that the UAE-based carrier was seeking to revise a proposed deal with the Indian carrier.

Jet shares opened weaker and lost further ground to touch intra-day low of Rs 501.60 on the BSE, down 4.88 per cent from its last closing price. The scrip gained some lost ground and closed at Rs 504.55, down 4.32 per cent.

The company has lost Rs 197 crore from its market worth that fell to Rs 4,355 crore, from Rs 4,552 crore in the previous trading session.

On the National Stock Exchange as well, the stock opened at Rs 522 and touched intra-day low of Rs 502.50, down 4.85 per cent from its previous closing price.
