New Delhi : Fresh tremors rocked the Indian capital and most of northern and eastern India on Sunday, triggering widespread panic.

“Fresh tremors were felt in Delhi and other parts of northern India at around 12.45 p.m.,” said G.L. Gautam, the IMD director.
“More aftershocks will follow… This will continue for weeks,” he said. “Northern India would not face much of a problem.”
The tremors were felt in Delhi, Gurgaon in Haryana, Noida and Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, Jaipur and Kolkata, residents said.
The tremors lasted for nearly two minutes in the Indian capital.
