A probe being conducted by the Shamli district administration into the alleged migration from Kairana, Uttar Pradesh, has found that from the list of 346 families, 188 had left over five years ago.

A Home department spokesman said that on verification of the list of 346 families provided by BJP MP Hukum Singh, it was found that 66 families had left Kairana 10 years ago.

It was also found that 60 families were living elsewhere for reasons relating to education, employment, health, or others, the spokesman said.

As many as 28 families mentioned in the list are still residing in Kairana, the spokesman added.

The spokesman said that names of seven families have been mentioned in the list twice and five who were on government service have left the town after retirement.

The inquiry has, however, found that in three cases the families had faced 'rangdari' threats and police took timely action.

Some cases of Muslim families leaving Kairana and moving elsewhere in search of livelihood and education have also come to light, the spokesman said.

Hukum Singh had released a list of 346 families claiming that they have migrated from Kairana after which the district administration had ordered a probe.
