Comment on BTST/ATST( Buy/Acquire Today Sell tomorrow)

I have had a mixed experience.I had bought equal quantities of a particular share on both NSE and BSE (Day 1). It was a normal buy.The next morning(Day2),I placed a sell call (BTST) on both the lots in respective indices and made a good sum and my account didn’t have any share of this company.By afternoon, there was some good news in the company and I again bought the same quantity of shares on NSE in a Normal buy. However, the broker’s statement shows an intraday trade for NSE and a loss!Also the shares that had been bought and sold from BSE were reflected in my account the next day, instead of the second set that I bought on day 2.Is the broker right in terming it as an intraday trade(that too a short as my sell price was lower than buy price of set 2) when I had placed a Normal buy ?
