Kerala Man's Prediction Of Earthquake In Pakistan Sets Off Alarm Bells In The Neighbouring Country

A letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by a Kerala man on the possibility of a high-magnitude earthquake in Pakistan has set off alarm bells in the neighbouring country.

Babu Kalayil, director of B.K. Research Association for E.S.P, in Kerala, who claims to have extra-sensory perception claimed that a massive earthquake will strike the Indian Ocean by December 31 this year that would set off a powerful tsunami in the region, reported The Times of India.

On Saturday, a document from Pakistan's Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority (ERRA) mentioned about the possibility of a strong earthquake quoting an "Information Report" from the country's intelligence agency, ISI.

Now, it appears that it is the same report by Kalayil.

The letter, riddled with grammatical errors, says that 11 countries will be affected due to the earthquake. It will also be followed by "SEESHMA" storm during which wind speed will range between 120km/hr to 180 km/hr. The observation was said to have made on August 20 at the E.S.P centre.

Here's the letter:

Quoting  BBC Urdu, Pakistani newspaper The Tribune has reported that Kalayil's prediction has been taken seriously by Pak officials and they have started preparations to deal with the situation.

The chief of Pakistan's Met Dept, Dr Ghulam Rasool, told BBC Urdu: "This prediction has no scientific justification, albeit, we are preparing to save ourselves from its effects. ERRA has also started its work by writing the letter.”

A circular was issued by ERRA asking for the immediate enforcement of SOPs and a team of officers were appointed for the task. Former Pakistan ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, tweeted a copy of the circular.
