New Delhi: A 4.0-magnitude earthquake struck Jammu and Kashmir early on Saturday, and its tremors were felt in national capital Delhi as well.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the epicentre of the earthquake was 43- kilometers north of Ladakh capital Leh.

Saturday's tremor came days after four earthquakes within three hours brought people in south Delhi rushing out of their homes in the dead of the night.

Experts have described the recent quakes as mild tremors caused by a re-alignment in fault zones.
