New Delhi, Jan 8 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to former Andhra Pradesh Governor N D Tiwari on a paternity suit filed by Rohit Shekhar, who claims to be his biological son.

A division bench headed by Justice A P Shah issued a notice to Tiwari asking him to file his response by February 9.

Shekhar had earlier filed his appeal on November 3, 2009 before a division bench; after a single-bench order had dismissed his petition on the grounds of jurisdiction saying that it was not maintainable.

The bench headed by Justice S N Dhingra had permitted the plea of Tiwari asking for dismissal of the petition filed by Shekhar.

Shekhar had challenged the November 3 verdict that had dismissed his petition.

Last month, Tiwari had to resign as the Andhra Pradesh Governor, after a news channel showed him in a compromising position with three women in Raj Bhavan.

Tiwari had however dismissed the allegations and said that he was resigning on health grounds. (ANI)
