Kolkata: At least 12 people were injured in West Bengal when an earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale rocked Manipur and other north-eastern states early on Monday, officials said.

Reports of people suffering injuries came in from north Bengal's Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling districts as the strong temblor hit the country's north-eastern states and adjoining Myanmar, Bangladesh and Bhutan early on Monday morning.

As many as eight people were hospitalised in the Siliguri District Hospital while four were brought in at Jalpaiguri hospital, officials said, adding that there were no immediate reports of any casualty.

In Murshidabad district's Lalbagh, villagers claimed that a senior citizen died while being evacuated from his residence. However, district administration officials were yet to confirm the death.
