Tiwari's blood sample collected, petitioner doubts DNA tests
Blood samples have been collected from ND Tiwari in the 4-year-old paternity suit but even this move has failed to convince petitioner Rohit Shekhar, who fears that blood samples can be altered.

AFTER DIILLY-DALLYING for about four years, veteran Congress leader and former Andhra Pradesh Governor N D Tiwari has given his blood samples to a team of doctors who arrived at his Dehradun residence on Tuesday. Samples have also been collected from Rohit Shekhar, who claims to be Tiwari's biological son.

Tiwari had refused to furnish the samples, citing his old age but a bench of Supreme Court judges dismissed it saying 'it doesn't mean blood isn't running in his body.

To decide the 4-year-old paternity case, the Supreme Court even threatened that police action could be used against Tiwari if he doesn't get his blood samples colllected voluntarily. Though today's developments are seen as a major breakthrough to decide the case but petitioner Shekhar doubts whether justice would be done to them.

Speaking to Network 1 News and Information Syndicate (NNIS), a news aggregator, Shekhar said: “There is no hope from him, I only trust the Judicial system of my country. I don't think they will give the original results of the sample.” He threatened that Tiwari has to go to jail now. “When I was 28-years old, I was sent to ICU and he was ruthless. Now it is his time to suffer in Tihar Jail. This time either he or I will go to Tihar Jail,” said Shekhar.

But his mother, Ujjwala Sharma has her hoped pinned on the trial. “We expect this as to be a fair trial,” she told NNIS. Hailing the court order to force Tiwari to comply with the judgement she said, “The court gave a very strong judgement and said that Tiwari has to comply with the court's order keeping in view the decision of the division bench.”

High Court judge Justice Reva Khetrapal had ruled that 86-year-old Tiwari can't leave India till he gives blood sample for the DNS test in the wake of orders from both the High and the Supreme Courts.
