An earthquake measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale hit Delhi-NCR on Thursday night at 11.46 p.m. While the epicenter was near Alwar district in Rajasthan, the tremors were strong in the capital region. The tremors prompted people to venture out of their homes in fear but the cold forced them to go back into their blankets.
