The epicenter was located near Syaule Bazar at a shallow depth of 10 km.

"I was watching a program in my laptop when tremor was felt. It was short and quick, enough me to get ready to go out the house. Then, it stopped," Bivek Bhattarai, a teacher from Baneshwor reported.

No preliminary damage or injuries have been reported.

Five days ago, a strong aftershock of magnitude 5.5 rattled the same area. More than 60 people were injured.

Atleast 430 aftershocks of magnitude 4 and greater have rattled Nepal since the Gorkha earthquake last year.
