Delhi HC decides to hear paternity suit against ND Tiwari
Wednesday, 17th March 2010
n a setback to former Andhra Pradesh governor ND Tiwari, the Delhi high court today dismissed his plea and decided to adjudicate a paternity suit filed by a man claiming him to be his son.
A division bench headed by justice Vikramjit Sen dismissed the plea of the 84-year-old Congress leader who sought dismissal of the petition on the ground that it was filed 31 years after the petitioner was born.
The court set aside a single bench order which had dismissed the paternity suit filed by Rohit Shekhar, a law graduate, on the ground that it was not maintainable.
The bench directed all the parties to appear before the single judge on April seven when the suit will be heard on merits.
