Jammu and Kashmir

Srinagar, May 28: 

Bikram Singh Bali, senior seismologist from Kashmir and Reader at the Department of Earth Sciences, Kashmir University, told a local daily that the prediction by individuals at Oregon State University claiming an 8.0 or above Richter scale earthquake to hit J&K state in coming time is a False report.

Bali said that, he had recently visited the site where the researcher (Yann Gavillot) had dug, and after studying the seismic time and pattern of the Reasi fault it could be said that the area is definitely prone to earthquake but confirming a magnitude of 8.0 or above is impossible.
