An Earthquake of magnitude 6.3 hit Tajikistan on Friday night, the tremors were felt in Delhi-NCR and several other parts of North India.
Due to a software mistake, the seismology department at first erroneously gave the epicentre as Amritsar but later sent a revised statement to confirm the quake was in Tajikistan.
The tremors in Delhi and other parts of North India created panic among people who rushed out of their homes. There were no immediate reports of any loss of life or damage to property.
“No reports of any damage so far in Amritsar or other parts of Punjab following the earthquake. Top officials of Punjab police and local administration are keeping a close watch on the situation. Praying for everyone’s safety,” Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said in a tweet.
