Detailed tectonics of the study area. Black lines are previous mapped faults (Kazmi 1979; Nakata et al. 1991), dashed lines are fault traces based on morphology (Pinel-Puysségur et al., 2014). The focal mechanism solutions (FMS) are plotted on the basis of GCMT data. The general trend of the faults parallel to the right-lateral Urghargai fault is right-lateral, and the trend of those parallel to the Chaman fault is left-lateral. FMS 2 and 3 show the location and behavior of the earthquake doublet that occurred on October 28 and 29, 2008, respectively. The remaining focal mechanism solutions show the location of associated earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 4 (Mw). The source parameters of these shocks are given in Table 1
