One more embarrassment to N D Tiwari

In an embarrassment to veteran Congress leader, AP former Governor, N D Tiwari, a DNA test has confirmed that he is the biological father of Rohit Shekhar.

Earlier, the Delhi high court on Friday rejected his plea not to open his DNA report before a single judge bench, adjudicating the paternity suit of a city youth, who claims to be his son.

The court allowed Justice Reva Khetrapal, who has decided to open Tiwari’s DNA report along with those of paternity suit petitioner Rohit Shekhar and his mother Ujjwala Sharma at 2.30 pm today, to declare the DNA test result in open court, but asked her not to give its copies to any party to the case.

Dismissing Tiwari’s appeal against Justice Khetrapal’s July 19 decision, a division bench of Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said, “Not opening the DNA report may lead to a lengthy process”.

This has come as major embarrassment to Tiwari  who was previously involved  sex scandal and lost his Governor post.
