Srinagar: Strong tremors felt across India, Pakistan and Afghanistan on Tuesday rattled electric and telephone poles and triggered panic in Indian Kashmir, witnesses said.
The tremors were felt as far as the Indian capital of New Delhi, parts of Pakistan as well as the Afghan capital of Kabul.
The meteorological office in Pakistan said it was a moderate earthquake centred in the Hindukush mountains but did not give details. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.
The United States Geological Survey said the quake measured magnitude 6.4.
