A strong 6.5 magnitude earthquake killed four labourers in Bhutan who actually hail from Assam. They were identified as Meera Boro from Sashirpur in lower Assam’s Tamulpur, Mohan Praja from Menoka Tea Estate and Rupamoni Barman from Sukanjuli. They were working with a Border Roads Organisation project near Sundrupjhankar in Bhutan. It may be noted that the epicenter of the earthquake was Monger in Bhutan near Thimphu which rattled parts of the north eastern region. This for the fifth time earthquake rocked the region in a month. The last one took place on September 3 midnight where the magnitude in the Richter Scale was 5.9. There are reports of cracks in several apartments in Guwahati which forced the panic stricken residents to come out of the houses at around 2-23 in the afternoon.
