New Delhi, Apr 10 (PTI) Aluminium prices rose further by 0.65 per cent to Rs 140.20 per kg in futures trading today as speculators indulged in enlarging positions, tracking a firm trend overseas and pick-up in domestic demand.

Similarly, the metal for delivery in May traded higher by 80 paise, or 0.57 per cent, to Rs 140 per kg in 29 lots.
