NEW DELHI, March 5 � Strong tremors were felt in Delhi and parts of north India which were shaken by a moderate intensity quake this afternoon resulting in minor damages to some buildings, reports PTI.
The quake, measuring 4.9 on the Richter scale had its epicentre in Haryana�s Bahadurgarh district. The tremors were felt at around 1:11 pm for less than ten seconds but pulled panic-stricken people out of their homes and offices.
Though the quake did not cause any major damage, it created widespread panic with students rushing out of schools in neighbouring Gurgaon, Faridabad and Noida. People living in multi-storeyed buildings and working in high-rise offices were also seen running out.
