Congress leader ND Tiwari on Thursday failed to get any relief in the paternity suit filed against him, as the Supreme Court asked him to give his blood sample by May 29 for DNA test.
The Supreme Court said that the District Judge of Dehradun, accompanied with a civil surgeon and a pathologist, will go to Tiwari’s residence to collect the blood sample.
According to the apex court, the sample will then be sent to a laboratory in Hyderabad in a sealed envelope.
The 86-year-old leader has been embroiled in the paternity case for over four years, and the court had earlier ordered that police may use force if necessary to get Tiwari’s blood sample for the test.
The court’s directions came on the plea of 32-year-old Rohit Shekhar seeking to compel Tiwari to furnish his blood sample at the earliest to decide the four-year-old paternity suit. He has sought a judicial declaration that Tiwari is his biological father.
