N.D. Tiwari is Rohit Shekhar's biological father: DNA test
The Delhi High Court rejected the veteran Congress leader N D Tiwari's plea. Tiwari had prayed to the court not to open his DNA report before a single judge bench, but the court has held that Tiwari was the biological father of Rohit Shekhar.

THE PATERNITY suit was filed by Rohit Shekhar who claimed to have been fathered by N D Tiwari. Earlier, a division bench of acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw had said, "Not opening the DNA report may lead to a lengthy process". It was held by the court that the DNA report was a piece of evidence.

The DNA reports of N D Tiwari, Rohit Shekhar and his mother Ujjwala Sharma were opened yesterday (Friday) afternoon. It was in 2008; Rohit Shekhar had filed a paternity suit claiming Tiwari to be his biological father.

In 2009, one may recall that N D Tiwari, as Governer of Andhra Pradesh,  was alleged to be involved in a sex scandal video showing him in bed with three women at his official residence in the Raj Bhavan in Hyderabad. Then Tiwari had to resign from the post of governor along with tendering a public apology.
