The Delhi High Court pulled up N D Tiwari for not giving blood samples - PTI file photo.
The Delhi High Court on Thursday sternly warned Congress leader N.D. Tiwari of 'dire consequences' for refusing to provide his blood sample for DNA profiling to decide a paternity suit filed by Rohit Shekhar, who claims to be his biological son.
The court postponed the hearing for Aug 2.
Hearing the arguments by Tiwari's counsel Bahar-e-Barqui, Justice Gita Mittal said: "If you (Tiwari) won't pass through the tests directed by court in the paternity suit, then the court may pass an order that plaintiff is his (Tiwari's) son."
The case relates to a 31-year-old Shekhar, who claims to be the 87-year-old politician's biological son. Tiwari refused to provide his blood sample in an affidavit filed last week.
The court said adopting such delaying tactics will have dire consequences.
The court also pulled up Tiwari's counsel asking why he had not filed an admissional or a denial affidavit on behalf of Tiwari, accepting or rejecting his presence in the photographs submitted by Shekhar.
"Every document has to be submitted. Otherwise, I will direct Tiwari to appear in person for recording his statement regarding denial and admission in each and every photograph presented," said Justice Mittal.
