An earthquake of magnitude 6.3 occurred in Tajikistan at around 10.30 p.m. on Friday, according to an early report from India’s National Centre for Seismology. The impact of the quake was significant enough to be registered in the Delhi -National Capital Region with several people running out of their houses. The earthquake was located at a depth of 74 km.
For a brief period, the NCS attributed the location of the earthquake to Amritsar, Punjab. “We can confirm there was no quake in Amritsar. The software picked up a signal erroneously. However we are investigating if another quake occurred, “ V.K. Bansal, Director, NCS told The Hindu.
