Thursday, a tunnel-like structure was found in Delhi Assembly that directly connects to the Red Fort. It had been purported to be employed by Britishers to maneuver the liberty fighters to court from the underpass so the general public can't see them.
As per documents, Delhi assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel stated, "When I became an MLA in 1993, there was hearsay a couple of tunnel present here that goes till Red Fort and that I tried to go looking for its history. But there was no clarity over it Now we’ve got the mouth of the tunnel but we are not digging it further as all the paths of the tunnel are destroyed because of metro projects and sewer installations."
“We all knew about the presence of a gallows room here but never opened it. Now it was the 75th year of independence and that I decided to examine that room. We shall change that room into a shrine of freedom fighters as a tribute to them," he further explained.
Goel further asserted, that, as a tribute to the good freedom fighters of India, he wants to open the gallows room for the tourist viewing by the national holiday, next year. The report claimed that the work for the identical has already started.
