New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday issued a notice to a Hyderabad-based laboratory seeking its response on modalities to conduct a DNA test on veteran Congress leader N. D. Tiwari to ascertain the plea of a 31-year-old man claiming to be his biological son.
Joint Registrar Deepak Garg has sought a response by April 20, the next date of court hearing, from the Centre for DNA, Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD) which was asked by Justice Gita Mittal recently to conduct the test on Mr. Tiwari.
The laboratory's response was required as to how it would go for the test and how much time it will take in ascertaining the outcome, Mr. Garg said.
The Joint Registrar would record evidence for enabling the Court to decide Rohit Shekhar's plea that he be declared the son of the veteran Congress leader. Justice Mittal had modified an earlier order by asking CDFD, instead of the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, to conduct the test. - PTI
