The Ichum Keirap Kom Village Authority has informed that the Divisional Forest Officer Bishnupur included a non-existent village called Ichum Keirap Moriah Village at Sl No 10 in its Show Cause Notice issued on May 18, 2022.
 In a release, the village authority stated that there is no village by the name "Ichum Keirap Moriah Village" and "Moriah" is a name of the locality of Ichum Keirap Kom Village.
It also alleged that DFO Bishnupur did not verify the actual position from SDO Bungte Sub-Division office or DC Kangpokpi District before including the non-existent village in the official Show Cause Notice.
The village authority appealed to the DFO Bishnupur to delete the name of non-existent village i.e. Ichum Keirap Moriah village at Sl No 10 of Show Cause Notice dated May 18, 2022.
"It is place for record that Ichum Keirap Kom Village was excluded from protected Forest area by Forest Settlement Officer, Government of Manipur vide its order dated September 22, 1977", it concluded.
