Tiwari restrained from leaving India until DNA testMay 14th, 2012 - 1:52 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 14 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday restrained veteran Congress leader N.D. Tiwari from leaving India until he furnishes his blood sample for a DNA test.
Justice Reva Khetrapal, hearing the plea of a man who claims to be the biological son, granted two days time to Tiwari to inform the court whether he wants to give blood sample willingly or not.
The high court April 27 had directed Tiwari to give his blood sample for a DNA test to decide a paternity suit and said that the leader can even be forced to do so if he refuses.
There is an urgent need of blood sample for DNA test as there are chances that Tiwari may depart from India in order to avoid the court order, Shekhar said in his petition while seeking an order restraining Tiwari from leaving India until he furnishes DNA samples.
Approaching the court, 32-year-old Rohit Shekhar said that due to the Tiwari’s advanced age (86), time is of essence and irreparable loss will be caused him if the samples are not collected at the earliest as vital evidence may be lost forever.
In his petition, Shekhar submitted that in case Tiwari fails to appear or furnish a blood sample on the date that will be appointed by the court, a commissioner be appointed to draw blood sample from him forcefully.
Acting Chief Justice A.K. Sikri had said that if Tiwari continues to defy the court’s order to give his blood sample for DNA analysis, police force will be used against him.
Justice Sikri had passed the order on Shekhar’s plea challenging the order of Justice Gita Mittal, who in September 2011, said that Tiwari cannot be physically compelled or confined for submitting his blood sample for DNA analysis.
Through the petition, Shekhar sought order from the court that he is the biological son of Tiwari and his mother Ujjwala Sharma. “A decree of perpetual injunction be passed, restraining defendent 1 (Tiwari) from denying in public or otherwise that he is the father of plaintiff (Shekhar),” the petition said.
Tiwari had on June 1, 2011 refused to appear in the high court dispensary to give his blood sample for DNA test to ascertain Shekhar’s claim, saying he cannot be forced to do so.
