In British India, the district of Midnapore in Bengal became a hub of revolutionary activities…there were several organizations involved in armed revolution as well as non violence movement. The British wanted to divide the district along with the partition of Bengal. The proposed district was named Hijli and it's headquarter was constructed near Kharagpur, but was never used for that purpose…as the plan could never be realized. In 1931, the building was converted to a detention camp to keep the under-trial detainee revolutionaries..only to witness to an extreme incident of torture by the Britishers on the Indians who bled on the soil of this building..during the second world war it served as the headquarters for American air force…and lastly…in the very same building the 1st Indian Institute of Technology was established.
