The production of beams from charged-current reaction of νμ and ν̄μ on C and H was investigated in liquid scintillator neutrino detector (LSND). The source for π0 was provided by 800-MeV beam of protons incident on water-copper target. Majority of triggers were induced by cosmic rays which were classified as through-going muons, electrons from stopping muon decays and recoil protons from neutron collisions. The spatial correlation between muons and the Michel electrons for beam-off, beam-on and beam-excess events was observed from visible energy distribution.
