Cuttack, Mar 4: In a major jolt to Congress's Cuttack-Barabati MLA Mohammed Moquim, the Orissa High Court invalidated his election today. 

The court's decision stemmed from a petition brought forth by BJD leader Debashish Samantaray, who contested Moquim's election citing allegations of suppression of criminal cases and inaccurate disclosure of assets and liabilities in Moquim's nomination papers. 

Notably, Samantaray, who was defeated by Moquim in the 2019 polls for the Cuttack-Babarati assembly constituency, raised these concerns in his petition.
