Nagpur: The Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court Wednesday issued notices to state Election Commission and returning officer of Nagpur Lok Sabha constituency over rejection of nomination papers filed by a TMC candidate.
A division bench of Justice Bhushan Dharmadhikari and Justice P R Bora, issued notices on a petition filed by Uttam Mendhe who is contesting on Trinamool Congress ticket.

His nomination was rejected on the ground of not submitting a list of 10 proposers, including their names and signatures, along with the nomination papers.

The notice is returnable by March 28, said Mendhe`s counsel Anil Kilor.

Nagpur, going to polls on April 10, is witnessing a three-cornered fight with former BJP president Nitin Gadkari, Congress` sitting MP Vilas Muttemwar and AAP`s Anjali Damania in the fray.
