The National Centre for Seismology (NCS) said the epicenter of the 6.3-magnitude earthquake, which struck at 1.57 am, was in Nepal, about 90 km east-southeast of Pithoragarh.

The region has been experiencing lower-magnitude quakes for the last few days.

As a massive earthquake has left a trail of destruction in parts of Nepal, the government has mobilized its army to carry out search and rescue operations in the most affected areas.
