Kasaragod: A part of the wall of the observation post of the Bekal Fort in Kasargod district caved in, after the laterite stones of the wall collapsed owing to the incessant rain lashing across the district for the last one week.

The observation post, which is situated on the eastern side of the historical Bekal Fort, is one of the most popular tourist spots in Kasargod district.

The Bekal fort, which is under the administration of the Archaeological Survey of India is a popular tourist spot. Entry of tourists to the observation post was barred following the wall collapse.

According to an official, the extent of damage due to caving in of the wall is being assessed but it is unlikely to affect the monument’s strength.

Repair works will be initiated once the assessment is done and the rains subside, he added.
