He shared that this isn't the first time Muslims have been identified as working in this sacred area under changed names and identities.

Same incident also happened in May

In May, an individual was apprehended near Har Ki Pauri who had been operating an eatery under a concealed identity. As per the reports, this man was managing a food outlet for pilgrims near Har Ki Pauri under a Hindu name. 

An official from the organization responsible for overseeing Hindu religious sites informed that the person's real identity was unveiled upon inspecting his Aadhaar card.
