The Delhi High Court today rejected Congress leader N.D. Tiwary's plea against the paternity test, requested by one Rohit Shekhar, who claims to be his biological son, and slapped a fine on him.
The veteran politician had moved the High Court to quash its earlier order for a DNA test on him to determine paternity of Shekhar.
Hearing Tiwary's petition, a division bench of Justices Vikramajit Sen and Siddharth Mridul not only rejected his plea but also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on him.
The order reads, 'Irreparable loss is bound to visit the plaintiff (Rohit Shekhar) if the orders under the application are not immediately passed in as much as the suit itself may be rendered infructuous and vital evidence may be lost forever.'
