Dehradun, May 29 (ANI): Veteran Congress leader N.D. Tiwari's blood samples were collected on Tuesday after a team of doctors reached his Dehradun residence on the order of the Supreme Court.
Petitioner Rohit Shekhar and his mother were present at Tiwari's residence when the sample was taken by two doctors who are being supervised by the Delhi High Court.
A bench of Justice Deepak Verma and Justice S.J. Mukhopadhyay had earlier directed Tiwari to submit his blood sample after it declined to accept his challenge to the Delhi High Court order directing him to give his blood sample.
The order came after the leader's counsel said that Tiwari could not move around because of his age.
The High Court had on May 14 asked Tiwari to inform it within two days as to whether he wants to voluntarily give his blood sample for a DNA test in a paternity suit or police force be used for obtaining it.
High Court judge Justice Reva Khetrapal had also told the counsel for Tiwari that his client will not leave India till he gives his blood sample. (ANI)
