A powerful earthquake measuring 7.2 magnitude struck Tajikistan today, shaking buildings as far away as in New Delhi and other parts of north India.

The epicentre of the quake was 111km southwest of Karakul, a sparsely populated mountainous area, at a depth of 28 kilometers, the US Geological Survey said.

A spokesman for Tajikistan’s Emergencies Committee said it had no information so far on any casualties or damage from the quake. The quake did not affect Russian military bases in Tajikistan, RIA news agency reported, citing Russia’s defence ministry.
