Deputy Commissioner P. Sunil Kumar has clarified that there was no earthquake either in Alamatti dam or anywhere in Vijayapura district.
The seismic data recording centres in Alamatti dam or in Vijayapura did not record any seismic data , the DC said in a release.
His statement came in the wake of a rumour on social media handles of some persons in the district and elsewhere.
