"As of now, there is no immediate report of any casualty or damage to property," Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Bhaderwah, Mohammad Anwar Banday, said.

Panic-stricken people rushed out of their homes in Doda town when the quake, whose epicentre was 12km south-west of Bhaderwah, rattled the picturesque valley.

People of Chenab valley are apprehensive of tremors after a study by a group of US scientists published last year predicted that there is a possibility of major earthquake in J&K.
