New Delhi: Veteran Congress leader N D Tiwari, who is to appear on October 8 for cross-examination in connection with the paternity suit against him, has moved a plea in the Delhi High Court seeking adjournment of proceedings for eight weeks citing health reasons.  





In his application, which is likely to be heard on Monday, 88-year-old Tiwari has sought postponement of his questioning saying he will be unable to travel from Lucknow to Delhi on account of his ongoing treatment of heart ailment.  

“I have been advised to avoid exertion and travel,” the plea said, adding that the 83-year-old younger brother of Tiwari was also hospitalised.

On October 8, Tiwari is supposed to appear before high court appointed local commissioner S M Chopra, a former additional district judge, for recording evidence on day-to-day basis in the case.
