Sri Lanka rupee hits fresh low of 162.90 per dollar - market sources

COLOMBO, Sept 13 (Reuters) - The Sri Lankan rupee touched a fresh all-time low of 162.90 per dollar on Thursday due to higher dollar demand from importers, market sources said.

The local currency surpassed its previous low of 162.70, in the previous session.

The rupee has lost 0.9 percent this month, and 6.1 percent so far this year. (Reporting by Shihar Aneez)
