New Delhi: A secret tunnel-like structure was unearthed at the Delhi Legislative Assembly on Thursday.

Delhi Legislative Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said that the tunnel which connects the the legislative assembly to Red Fort was used by the Britishers to avoid reprisal while moving freedom fighters.

Speaking to ANI, Goel said, “When I became an MLA in 1993, there was hearsay about a tunnel present here that goes till Red Fort and I tried to search for its history. But there was no clarity over it.”

“Now we have got the mouth of the tunnel but we are not digging it further as all the paths of the tunnel have been destroyed due to metro projects and sewer installations,” he added.

It is gathered that this tunnel will be renovated and it wll be made available for the public from August 15 next year.

The Delhi Legislative Assembly dates to 1911 when the British moved the Indian capital from Calcutta (now Kolkata) to Delhi and is a fine example of the architecture of the period.
