After a nightmarish Wednesday with a bomb blast at the Delhi High Court, the national capital was also shaken by a medium intensity earthquake at about midnight. Fortunately there have been no casualties or damages.
Anxious Delhiites were out on the streets on Wednesday night when strong tremors were felt in the national capital region around 11:30 at night.
"It felt like there was a bomb blast, so we ran away from the building," said a local.
"We switched on the TV and then we came to know that there was an earthquake, so there was a lot of panic," said another.
"I called my landlord and I called my neighbour saying please come out because everything is shaking," said another jolted local.
According to the Meteorological Department, it was an earthquake of moderate intensity, measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale. The epicentre was Sonepat in Haryana.
Even though there have been no reports of damage or casualties, on a day when a blast at the Delhi high court killed more than ten people and injured dozens, these moderate intensity tremors were enough to shake the capital city.
