Mumbai: Jan 22; Market benchmark BSE Sensex recaptured the 24,000-mark by adding over 240 points in early trade today, tracking gains at other Asian markets.

Among other Asian markets, Japan's Nikkei was up 3.59 per cent in early trade today amid speculation that Japan's central bank is considering taking fresh measures to counter the impact of falling oil prices.
