50 injured as tremors rock Jhelum, Mirpur after AJK earthquake

At least 50 people received minor injuries after tremors rocked Mirpur in Azad Kashmir and Jhelum Thursday morning, spreading panic in the areas. 

The tremors measured 4.4 on the Richter scale and the epicentre was 6km from Jhelum. This is the same fault line as of the earthquake that rocked the region on Tuesday.

People fled army medical camps set up in Mirpur’s Samwal Sharif in fear and rushed out of their homes and offices.

SAMAA TV correspondents reported seeing three injured people being brought to the medical camp in Samwal Sharif. One of the injured was a young man who fell off his roof.

An emergency has been declared in the area again and Rescue 1122 is on standby.

Thirty-eight people were killed and over 600 injured in Tuesday’s earthquake, which measured 5.8 on the Richter scale.
