New Delhi, May 10 (ANI): The Supreme Court will hear former Andhra Pradesh Governor N D Tiwari's petition challenging the paternity case filed against him by Rohit Shekhar who claims to be his biological son.

The Delhi High Court had on March 17 rejected Tiwari's plea for quashing Shekhar's paternity suit.

A division bench of the high court had hinted that Tiwari might have to undergo a DNA test to decide the issue. It set aside a single bench order that had dismissed Shekhar's paternity suit filed by Shekhar's on ground that it was time barred and non maintainable.
