Change of lab for conducting test

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday modified its earlier order and asked veteran Congress leader N.D. Tiwari to undergo a DNA test at the Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD), Hyderabad, instead of the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) there.

The Court has asked Mr. Tiwari to undergo the test following a petition filed by 31-year-old Rohit Shekhar, who had claimed to be his biological son. The Court was of the considered view that Mr. Tiwari needed to undergo the test to remove the uncertainty over Mr. Shekhar's paternity.

Justice Gita Mittal modified her earlier order directing Mr. Tiwari to undergo the test at the CCMB after Mr. Shekhar submitted that the institution had stopped conducting DNA tests.

The matter will now come up before the Joint Registrar, on April 4, for deciding the procedural formalities to conduct the test.

A Division Bench of the Court had, last month, dismissed an appeal by Mr. Tiwari against a Single Bench order that had asked him to undergo the test to decide the claim of the youth that the veteran leader was his biological father. Dismissing the appeal, the Bench had observed: “Irreparable loss is bound to visit the plaintiff [Mr. Shekhar] if orders are not passed immediately.”
