   Apr 27, 1:45 pm

New Delhi, Apr 27 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday asked veteran Congress leader ND Tiwari to undergo a DNA test in the paternity suit filed by Rohit Shekhar, who claims he is the former's son.

The High Court also said police can intervene if necessary to collect the DNA sample.he court had on February 28 reserved its order on Shekhar's plea, which said the single-judge bench had failed to deal with Tiwari's "dismissive conduct" against its previous order to give his blood sample to decide his paternity suit.

The court had earlier turned down the plea of Tiwari that he cannot be forced to undergo the DNA test, saying it is the right of a child to know his or her biological father.

The Delhi High Court had also dismissed Tiwari's plea challenging imposition of Rs 75,000 as cost on him for seeking deletion of certain paragraphs from a paternity suit filed against him by Shekhar.

The High Court had also rejected Tiwari's plea for dismissal of the petition on the ground that it was filed 31 years after the petitioner was born in order to malign his character.

Tiwari had quit as Andhra Pradesh Governor following allegations of his involvement in a sex scandal inside Raj Bhavan. (ANI)
