A 10-member panel will be formed to look into the historical value of the remaining houses in the Mahakan Fort Community to determine whether they should be preserved, says a source close to City Hall.

He was speaking after a meeting of representatives from the Mahakan Fort community, academics, representatives from non-governmental organisations and city officials who met to discuss the city's plans for the site.
