Early on Tuesday, a 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck the Gujarati village of Khavda, which is close to the Pakistan-India border. So far, there have been no reported casualties.
The epicentre of the seismic activity was near the border road that runs along India’s shared international boundary with Pakistan, about 39 kilometres north-northeast of Khavda, according to the Gandhinagar-based Institute of Seismological Research (ISR).
In a largely deserted area, the earthquake struck at a depth of 1.3 km at 1.09 am.
At Dudhai in Kutch, similar seismic activity was last observed in January of this year.
