After the terror attack in the morning, earthquake rocks Capital late at night

Just half an hour before midnight, an earthquake measuring 4.2 on the Richter Scale shook Delhi and NCR for 5-6 seconds yesterday.

The incident occurred at around 11.30 p.m. Initial estimates were of a 6.6 magnitude quake, but the Met department scaled down the intensity. There were no immediate reports of casualties, though sources said a building had collapsed in Noida.

The epicentre of the quake was in Sonepat in Haryana, about 90 km from Delhi, and its aftershocks were also felt in northern states like Uttarakhand and J&K.
