one more week to veteran Congress politician and former Andhra
Pradesh Governor N D Tiwari to file his response on a
paternity suit filed by a youth claiming to be his biological

A Bench headed by Chief Justice A P Shah granted more
time to 84-year-old Tiwari as he failed to respond to court`s
notice of January 8.

The court listed the matter for further hearing on
March 11.

The High Court had on January 8 asked Tiwari to
respond in a month on a paternity suit, filed by 30-year-old
Rohit Shekhar.

He filed an appeal before a Division Bench challenging
a single-bench order which had dismissed his petition on the
ground that it was not maintainable and sought its direction
to declare Tiwari as his biological father.

The Court had on November 3 last allowed the plea of
Tiwari who had sought dismissal of the petition.

A law graduate, Shekhar, 30, filed the suit claiming
he was born out of a relationship between his mother Ujjwala
Sharma and Tiwari, a charge denied by the latter.
