New Delhi: Mild tremors were felt in several parts of Delhi and NCR on Wednesday evening when a 6.8 magnitude earthquake jolted the Myanmar-India border region.

The epicentre of the earthquake was at 23 degrees North latitude and 94.9 degree East Longitude on the Myanmar-India border region, said the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

“I was sitting in my office when I felt the tremors at around 7.40 p.m. We immediately came out of the building. The tremors lasted for a few seconds,” Alok Kumar Kaushik, who works at a bank in north Delhi, told IANS.

Mild tremors were also felt in Mayur Vihar in east Delhi and neighbouring Noida and people came out of their homes.
