SC refuses to stay HC order for Tiwari`s DNA test

The SC today refused to stay the Delhi High Court order asking ND Tiwari to undergo DNA test.



New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the Delhi High Court order asking veteran Congress leader ND Tiwari to undergo DNA test in a paternity
case.

However, a bench comprising justices Aftab Alam and RM Lodha made it clear that the findings of the test would not be made public until and unless it is required by the court to decide the paternity suit against Tiwari.

The bench said the report would be kept in a sealed envelope and directed the 85-year-old leader to suggest by Friday the procedure preferred by him to undergo the DNA test.
Refusing to grant any relief, the apex court said that considering the age of the leader, it is necessary to have a DNA test so that the young man claiming to be his son is not left without any remedy if something happens to Tiwari.
