|Palakkad fort, Kerala|
That the medieval fort at Palakkad continues to remain in a poor condition is a sad story with respect this historical heritage site. Though the present custodian, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), made efforts through the Palakkad District Collector to immediately relocate major State government offices functioning within the complex, they are yet to move out. A Taluk supply office, special sub-jail, tahsildar office and an office of land reforms have occupied part of the fort complex and they have been there for a pretty long time. The jail portion is in bad condition and the jail inmates, numbering 130 are facing hardship. This is a case of human rights violation.
