An earthquake measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale with its epicentre in Afghanistan rocked Kashmir on Sunday evening, triggering panic among people here but there was no report of any damage to life and property.

"The epicentre of the tremor was in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. It measured 4.8 on the Richter scale," Kashmir met department director NP Bhatnagar told IANS.
