Jaipur, April 25: An earthquake jolted desert state of Rajasthan on Saturday morning and tremors were felt from Jaipur to border district Barmer.

However, there were no reports of any loss of life or property in the state.

“I suddenly found my chair shaking. I live on 4th floor in an apartment on Sirsi road in Jaipur. I just rushed out of my building, shouting and requesting people not to use the lift,” said Ravindra Kumar.

Another resident Manmohan of Raja Park area of the city said: “I was watching TV when suddenly everything started to shake. Initially I was confused then I realised that it was an earthquake and I came out of my building.”

The earthquake was felt most by those living in high rise buildings as a majority of them were seen standing outside, worried and concerned.

“I think it must have lasted for a minute,” said Ashok S Dharma, a resident of walled city area in Jaipur.
