An earthquake of magnitude 6.0 on the Richter scale jolted central Nepal today morning.

"An earthquake of magnitude 6.0 occurred around Ramche of Sindhupalchok district at 5:19 am," the National Seismological Centre tweeted minutes after the tremors.

The epicentre of the tremor has been recorded at Ramche of Sindhupalchok district. The tremors were felt in the most eastern part of the country as well.

"Since the jolt was felt, we haven't received any reports of damage or loss of human lives. We have already contacted all the wards inside the district to confirm if any mishap occurred or anybody needs any assistance. As of now, we haven't received any information on the matter," Superintendent of Police stationed at Sindhupalchok Rajan Adhikari said.

In 2015, nearly 10,000 people had lost their lives and thousands were injured when an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.9 Richter scale had struck the Himalayan nation.
