Rejecting veteran Congress leader N D Tiwari's plea, the Delhi High Court today directed him to undergo a DNA test to ascertain the veracity of a young man's claim that he is his biological son. 

Justice S Ravindra Bhat said, "There is imminent need for him to give blood sample to conduct the scientific test." 

The court turned down the 85-year-old former Andhra Pradesh Governor's plea that he cannot be forced to undergo the DNA test, saying it is the right of a child to know his or her biological father. 

"...It is not in the interest of the child to be declared a bastard," the court said. 

Justice Bhat passed the order on a paternity suit filed by 31-year-old Rohit Shekhar, claiming to be biological son of Tiwari.
