Srinagar/UNI: A mild quake occurred in the Jammu and Kashmir in the wee hours of Friday, a Metrological department spokesman said here.

Tremors measuring 4.3 magnitude on the Richter scale were felt at 0153 hrs in Jammu and Kashmir, spokesman told UNI.

He said its epicenter was at 33.03 degree north and 73.63 degree east at a depth of 10 km inside the earth at India-Pakistan border.
