ASI STARTS BUILDING WALL TO SAVE FREED LAND AT TUGHLAQABAD FORT
In a bid to prevent its land getting encroached again, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has started construction of a 1km-long, 1.6-metre-high boundary wall at Tughlaqabad Fort. It will be topped with concertina wire and built with stone masonry.
The project, being executed by National Buildings Construction Corporation, will cost Rs 5.25 crore. Nearly 25 acres at the historic fort was freed from squatters during ASI's two-day demolition drive in May.
