Section of historic Vadnal fort collapses due to heavy rain….

Davangere :  While the torrential rain across the state has impacted very much the lives of people and cattle, here in Davanagere district, a section of the historical Vadnal fort located in Chanagiri taluk has collapsed due the heavy downpour in the area.

There are several houses in the surrounding area of the fort and locals have expressed concern that the fort may collapse completely if the rain fury continues. While no casualties were reported in the collapse that occurred five days ago, the stones have fallen onto the streets inconveniencing the school-going children and others who have to hop over them to reach their destination.
