Ahir, in his petition, has said Manek's election should be set aside as he had submitted a defective nomination form.
Admitting the contention raised by Ahir, Justice Paresh Upadhyay Friday cancelled the election held for the Dwarka seat in December 2017.
Though Ahir also sought to declare himself as the winner, the court has not accepted that prayer and only ordered the cancellation of the election.
In his petition, Ahir claimed that Manek forgot to write the name of the constituency in the form, a lapse which calls for cancellation of his election.
