Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya:  MeT department says that the 6.1 magnitude (on the richter scale) earthquake on the Afghanistan-Tajikistan border region shook several parts of north India, including the national capital and the Kashmir Valley on Wednesday. What was felt in the Delhi-NCR region as well as the Kashmir Valley, led to panic in some parts with people rushing outdoors for safety.

The tremors were felt strongly in the Valley, people were then rushing out of buildings and vehicles in a panic. For many people in Kashmir, tremors recalled the nightmare of the October 2005 earthquake that flattened wide parts of Jammu and Kashmir on either side of the Line of Control.
