ISLAMABAD - A moderate earthquake measuring 5.3 on Richter Scale shook parts of northern Pakistan and India early Thursday but there were no reports of any casualties or damage, seismic center officials said.
The epicenter of the quake, which occurred at 3:04 a.m. local time, was located in Hazara division, about 120 kilometers north of capital Islamabad, officials at the seismic center in Pakistan?s northern city of Peshawar said.
The earthquake was felt in Islamabad, Peshawar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
India?s Meteorological Department measured the quake at 5.2 on Richter Scale, according to the PTI news agency.
The agency quoted officials as saying there were no reports of damage to buildings or structures due to the tremor in India?s Jammu and Kashmir state.
At least 1,800 aftershocks and moderate earthquakes have been felt since October 8 when a 7.6-magnitude quake wreaked havoc in northern Pakistan and Kashmir, killing some 75,000 people and injuring some 100,000 others.
