Islamabad: An earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale struck Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and some areas in northern region Sunday morning, said Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD)

As per the latest updates, there was no immediate report of any loss of life or property.

The epicentre of the temblor, observed at 3.13 a. m. (local time), was determined some 95 km northwest of province's Chitral district at a focal depth of 211 km in the mountainous region of Hindu Kush, along Pakistan-Afghanistan border, reported Xinhua.

The quake created panic among the people who were busy preparing for morning prayer during the ongoing month of Ramadan.

According to local media, the quake was felt in Chitral, Swat, Malakand and Lower Dir areas of the province.

The country's northern region includes Gilgit-Baltistan.

In October 2005, a quake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale had killed over 80,000 people in Pakistan besides leaving millions homeless.
