The J&K earthquake was reported by the NCS shortly after two earthquakes were reported in Afghanistan-Tajikistan region. The NCS in another tweet shared that a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck the region of Tajikistan bordering Afghanistan at 6:10 am.

A second earthquake also struck Afghanistan just before the J&K earthquake, according to United States Geological Survey (USGS).
The USGS earthquake tracker shows a 4.1-magnitude earthquake struck northern Afghanistan bordering Tajikistan at 6:56 am IST — just a minute before the J&K earthquake reported by NCS.
Late on Saturday night, another earthquake of magnitude 4.1 was struck the same region, according to NCS.
