The National Centre for Seismology identified the epicenter of the earthquake to be located 233 kilometers north of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh, sending shockwaves across the region.

The sudden tremors induced panic among residents, causing many in Delhi and the National Capital Region to report strong shaking of desks and furniture. Social media videos captured people hurriedly evacuating residential buildings in response to the seismic activity.

Last Friday, Nepal was rocked by a powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake, claiming the lives of at least 157 individuals. This disaster was Nepal’s most devastating earthquake since 2015. Nepal’s location in one of the world’s most active tectonic regions renders it highly susceptible to seismic events.
