REUTERS - Indian shares ended down over 1 percent on Friday, resulting in a weekly loss, dragged by financials after the country raised the limit of bonds that can be issued under the market stabilisation scheme, while the sentiment was also subdued ahead of U.S. payrolls expected later in the day.

The Sensex fell 1.24 percent to 26,230.66, ending 0.33 percent lower for the week.

The Nifty fell 1.3 percent to 8,086.80 and fell 0.34 percent for the week.
