Many people say that Padma Purana was interpolated by the Jains.

Does any historian support this claim? Is there any evidence in support of this claim?

You are confusing the padma purana of hinduism literature with the padma purana written by Ravisena in Jainism. There is also a padma purana written by Chandrakriti of Buddhism tradition.

The jainism text gives an alternate ramayana, which is similar to the ramayana of the jainism tradition written by Vimalasuri.
