A powerful earthquake has rattled Pakistan, India and Afghanistan. In Pakistan, the ominous earthquake killed one man, and more than 30 persons were injured due to the natural disaster in the north-west of the country.

Furthermore, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake has been felt in north-eastern Afghanistan near the border with Tajikistan.

It is reported that strong tremors were felt in many South Asian cities (in Kabul, Islamabad, Lahore, Delhi and Dushanbe), forcing the inhabitants to leave their homes.

The information about the exact damage caused by the earthquake is not available, but the authorities suggest the occurrence of landslides.

New earthquakes occurred on April 2 and on the night of April 3. Their magnitude was 3.5 and 3.1. These tremors were recorded in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea and the territory of Ujar region.
