Mughal Farrukhsiyar Bagarkota Torgal Bagalkot Mint RY 2 Unique Silver Rupee Extremely Rare

Mintname seems to be 'Bagarkota Torgal' - which means 'Bagarkota' ( = Bagalkot) located in the administrative division of Torgal.
Bagarkota would be written as
ﺒﺎﻜﺮﻜﻮﺘﮧ
so yes, the first letter could be off-flan here.
Bagalkot is not very far from from Torgal to the East, so it could well have been a part of the same division.
In Farukhsiyar’s Ry.2, there was no Maratha presence here - so the coin is not a Maratha issue.
