New Delhi/IBNS: Strong tremors, lasting for nearly two minutes, were felt in several north Indian states when a 6.5 magnitude earthquake struck the Hindu Kush region in Afghanistan on Tuesday evening. 

This was the second earthquake to hit Afghanistan Tuesday.

The quake struck 133 km southeast of Fayzabad in Afghanistan, according to National Centre for Seismology.

Afghanistan is frequently hit by earthquakes, especially in the Hindu Kush mountain range, which lies near the junction of the Eurasian and Indian tectonic plates.

Tremors were also felt across various cities in Pakistan.

Videos shared on social media show people gathered on the streets and people reported objects falling inside their homes.

Many people came to open spaces in residential buildings as tremors were felt for a while.

No deaths or injuries were immediately reported.

Some even shared hilarious memes after the tremors.
