Apex court refuses early hearing to Tiwari's plea

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan refused to quash an order by the Delhi High Court that had asked Tiwari to file a reply on a petition filed by a person claiming to be his biological son. The petitioner, Rohit Sekhar, an advocate, sought direction for conducting the disgraced Congress leader’s DNA test to ascertain if he is Shekhar’s biological father.

 Appearing for Tiwari, Advocate A D N Rao apprised the Bench of his plea against the high court’s April 7 order, pending with the apex court’s registry and awaiting a hearing in July.

Rao pleaded for an early hearing saying the Congress leader has to respond to the high court’s order before May 20, failing which he will have to put up a personal appearance before it.
