Kolhapur: Following incessant rain, a section of the historic wall adjacent to Char Darwaja Panhala fort collapsed on Tuesday evening.
Last year, too, a part of the wall had collapsed near the same spot, but no repair works were carried out due to lack of funds. The Archaeological Survey of India needs to restore the structure before more damage is caused to the entire wall.
