A low intensity tremor shook Bhaderwah valley and adjoining areas in Doda-Kishtwar belt of Jammu and Kashmir in the wee hours today, triggering panic among the people.


The moderate intensity tremor measuring 3.9 on the Richter scale shook the valley at around 1:09 AM, Met officials said.

There was no immediate report of any casualty or injury reported from anywhere, the officials said.

However, it triggered fear among the people, most of whom were sleeping at their homes when the tremors shook the valley, leading them to rush out of their houses.

In May, Bhaderwah and adjoining areas witnessed 37 tremors.
