While giving the order, Election Officer Dr. Sourabh Pardhi said that even at the time of nomination of Nilesh Kumbhani, three people who had signed were not present. Apart from this, it was found during investigation that the signature given in the nomination of Congress candidate Nilesh Kumbhani was wrong.
