Rumourquake

Chandigarh, March 21
Hundreds of people in various areas of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh spent several hours sitting out in the open on Wednesday morning following rumours that an earthquake had occurred in north India.

People in many Punjab cities like Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Kapurthala and Chandigarh came out of their homes early on Wednesday after rumours of a tremor and expected aftershocks spread.

“We were sitting outside our home in Chandigarh for nearly five hours since morning. All people in our neighbourhood also sat outside,” said Sunita, a maid, who reached her employer’s home two-hours late.

People in many localities in Jalandhar also spent several hours in the open following the rumours. — IANS
