Sardar Sarvai Papanna Fort Collapses Due to Heavy Rain

Sardar Sarvai Papanna Fort Collapses Due to Heavy Rain in Jangaon district, Telangana. A video of the collapse of the 30-feet-tall wall has gone viral online. The Quila Shapur fort, about 95 km away from Hyderabad, was built by a local leader Sarvay Papadu or Sardar Sarvay Papanna. The Sardar Sarvai Papanna fort has been at the receiving end of official apathy and neglect for years, and now questions are being raised on its safety itself.

“People have been living in row houses very close to the wall. Around 7.30 am, the wall collapsed onto three houses fully damaging them. Around 40 people have been evacuated and moved to nearby government high school,” said K Ashok Kumar, sub-inspector Raghunathapally. “No one was injured in the incident.”

According to him, cracks were developed on the wall in June during heavy rains and as water continued to seep in, it collapsed. Some repair works were taken up by authorities recently, he said.

KS Sreenivasa Raju, IAS officer and the Director (in-charge) of the Department of Heritage Telangana, has ordered field inspection by a team led by the deputy director(engineering) and called for a report on the incident. “Once I have the report with me, I can share the details with you,” he said when contacted.

According to the department’s website, Sarvay Papa Rayudu of Quilla Shapur was a famous local leader who had revolted against the Golconda rulers and defied the Mughal-imperial authority with his activities centered around Tatikonda, Shahpur, Golconda, Bhuvanagiri, Warangal, Elgandal and Kaulas, etc. The fort is constructed on a square plan with massive bastions at four corners of the fortifications.
