    A massive earthquake measuring 7.3 magnitude (earlier reports had indicated anything between 7.1 to 7.4) on Richter scale epicentred in Nepal shook Delhi, Bihar, West Bengal and several parts of India today, less than three weeks after the region was struck by a devastating temblor.

Earthquake jolts were felt in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) today driven by the earthquake in Nepal. Delhi Metro was stalled for a while.
