A release stated that the Muslim community resides only in Ward No II of Moirang and Kumbi in Bishnupur but they have been found enlisted as beneficiaries for other areas. The fake Muslim residents were made up at Khoijuman in Oinam, Kwashiphai, Nachom, Potshangbam and Upokpi in Bishnupur, it added.

The information about the areas where Muslim community resides is known both by Administrator of Agriculture Department of Bishnupur and other related department, it stated. Yet, fake names were made which has caused disturbance in the community, it added.
