New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Tuesday closed the right to lead the evidence in Congress leader N.D. Tiwari's paternity suit after he failed to appear for cross-examination before the local commissioner, despite its direction.



Former additional district judge S.M. Chopra, appointed as local commissioner by the Delhi High Court for recording evidence on day-to-day basis in the case, referring to Justice Vipin Sanghi's direction issued Monday, said: "In view of the high court order, the evidence of Tiwari stands closed."

"Tiwari is not present for his cross-examination. Counsel for Tiwari states that he is not well and at present he is in Lucknow and unable to travel to Delhi," the commissioner added.

Tiwari was required to appear before the local commissioner for cross-examination in the paternity suit filed by a 32-year-old man, Rohit Shekhar, seeking to declare him as his biological father.
