The earthquake originated from the epicenter located at the heart of Bhatekhola in Bajhang's Mashta Rural Municipality. Uttam Joshi, the Ward President of Mashta-4, provided details of the unfortunate incident, noting that Mr. Farada suffered injuries to his hand, and his clothing was torn during the event.
