New Delhi, July 27 (ANI): In a major embarrassment to former Andhra Pradesh Governor and Congress leader N.D. Tiwari, his DNA test has matched with the blood sample of Rohit Shekhar, who had filed a paternity suit against him.
The DNA test has confirmed that Tiwari is the biological father of 32-year-old Shekhar.
The Delhi High Court earlier today rejected Tiwari's plea to keep his paternity DNA test result a secret.
Tiwari had earlier on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court to keep his DNA test report confidential till the conclusion of the hearing in the paternity suit.
He filed the appeal seeking the court to protect his right to reputation, and alleged that the single-judge bench, which ordered that the DNA report be made public, has adopted a "shortcut" to decide the suit and it would cause grave injustice to him.
Rohit Shekhar had taken Tiwari to court, demanding a DNA test to determine whether the Congressman is his biological father.
Tiwari had so far denied the allegations and tried different legal routes to avoid submitting a blood sample.
Tiwari had also moved the Supreme Court seeking to keep secret the results of the DNA test to find out whether he was Rohit Shekhar's biological father.'
Tiwari had in an application requested the apex court to direct the High Court not to reveal the contents of the DNA report.
The apex court had earlier on May 24 ordered Tiwari to give blood samples for the DNA test to verify 32-year-old Shekhar's allegations that the Congress leader was his biological father. (ANI)
