The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed an election petition challenging the election of DMK MP Kanimozhi from Tamil Nadu’s Thoothukudi constituency in 2019.
Kanimozhi had challenged a Madras High Court order which had refused to dismiss the petition against her
“The election petition is dismissed. Appeal is allowed,” a bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and Bela M Trivedi said.
Kanimozhi contested from the Thoothukudi constituency in 2019 and her election was challenged by a voter, A Sanathana Kumar, on grounds that she failed to mention her husband’s Permanent Account Number (PAN) in her election affidavit disclosing family assets.
