NEW DELHI: The Centre has sought a detailed report from Uttar Pradesh government on the alleged migration of Hindus from Kairana village in the state.

In a communication, the Home Ministry asked the state government to verify the allegations and send a detailed report to it as early as possible.

Official sources said the communication has been sent three days ago but no reply has been received.

Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju had yesterday said it was unfortunate if people were being forced to leave their homes in their own country.

"If people have to leave their homes in their own country, then the state government should take the responsibility. If the state government seeks any help, we will definitely give them," he had said.

There have been allegations that Hindus from Kairana village in Shamli district in western Uttar Pradesh were forced to leave their homes by people from another community.

However, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had accused BJP leaders of being "dishonest" and "lying" on the issue.

Yadav claimed that most of the people had left the village about 10 to 15 years back while others left in search of jobs about seven or eight years ago.
