Tremors were felt in several parts of north India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir, after an earth quake of 6.5 magnitude hit the Hindukush region in Afghanistan.

The moderate-intensity quake measuring 6.5 on the richter scale hit the Hindukush region at around 00:51 HRS IST, the IMD's Seismology Department said.

It said the tremors were felt in several parts of north India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir given its proximity to Afghanistan.

The department also said mild tremors were also felt in some parts of the national capital.

However, there were no reports of any damage.
