The waveform of the earthquake which occurred on Wednesday at a location south of Chilakaluripet in Guntur District. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 13 k.m. and its magnitude was 4.0 Photo: By Arrangement.

The earthquake that rocked parts of Prakasam and Guntur Andhra Pradesh in the early hours of Wednesday was caused by the plate motion stress and resulted in six small aftershocks subsequently, according to Srinagesh, seismologist at the CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) here.

The NGRI observatory and 16 seismic stations across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana recorded the "tectonic earthquake", which was of magnitude four on the Richter Scale. He, however, said that there was no cause for concern and the aftershocks were tapering off.

The epicentre of the earthquake was 20 k.m. south of Chilkaluripeta in Guntur District. He said that the region was moderately active seismically with small magnitude earthquakes. An earthquake of 4.1 magnitude had occurred in the same vicinity in 1996. A number of smaller tremors were recorded in the region over a period of time, he added.

Another seismologist, R. K. Chadha, said it was part of Stable Continental Region (SCR) earthquake. Prakasam was one such area which has been witnessing small tremors.

Hyderabad High Court rejects plea against roads

Dismissing a petition by TD MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, former MP V. Bala Shouri and three others against the alignment of the Chilakaluripet by-pass road and the widening of NH5 at Chilakaluripet, the Hyderabad HC held that laying a road and its alignment were the domain of experts and no one can question it.

CJ Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice P.V. Sanjay Kumar dismissed the petition challenging the rejection of representations seeking a change in the alignment of the by-pass.

Rayapati Sambasiva Rao and Bala Shouri moved the petition in 2009 when they were Congress MPs.

The petitioners  had represented to the Centre requesting it to lay the by-pass road starting from Thimmapuram located 4 km north of Chilakal-uripet and joining NH 5 near Tatapudi  Road, about 5 km to the south of Chilakaluripet.

They urged the Centre not to widen the NH5 passing through Thimmapuram, Ganapa-varam and Chilakaluripet into a six-lane road as it would affect the public.

They contended that the authorities cannot reject his application on grounds of contractual complications when it goes against public interests.

The bench pointed out that there was no law that every representation made should be considered by the authorities and the petitioners have not been able to state under which law the relief has to be granted.

Holding that laying a road or changing its alignment is the prerogative of experts the bench dismissed the petition. The court said that no one can question such a decision unless it is absolutely malafide.
