Delhi HC directs ND Tiwari to undergo DNA test

Apr 27, 2012 11:43 AM IST Politics Politics

New Delhi: Hearing the paternity suit against senior Congress leader ND Tiwari, the Delhi High Court on Friday asked him to give his blood sample so that the DNA test could be carried out.

The High Court also said that police assistance could be taken to get the blood sample if Tiwari does not cooperate.

"Take police assistance if ND Tiwari contines to evade court directive," said the High Court.

The paternity suit against Tiwari, the former governor of Andhra Prdesh, was filed by Rohit Shekhar, who claims the former is his father. He had appealed for the DNA test to be done.

Reacting to the court order, Rohit said that his hope had been renewed with the decision.

He said, "N D Tiwari has been evading the law for the past year. I was going to give up the case yesterday, but today my hope has been renewed. I know I am his son. The court has given the order that the police can confine him, today I am vindicated.

Rohit's mother Dr Nirmala Shekhar also said that the decision was a "great relief for us after a lapse of 20 years".

"We were losing hope actually, we were very rejected and Rohit was deciding to give it up altogether. But then, today again there is a ray of hope that Rohit will get justice," she said.
