New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday ordered Congress leader N D Tiwari to pay Rs 75,000 to Rohit Shekhar, who claims to be his biological son. The court’s ruling comes in compliance with its previous order on Rohit’s paternity suit.

Justice Gita Mittal directed Tiwari to comply with the court's August 13, 2010 order and pay the amount to Shekhar by May 10 before the court's joint registrar.

While dismissing Tiwari's plea for deletion of some portions of Shekhar's paternity suit, the court had imposed a fine of Rs 75,000 and had directed him to pay the amount within the stipulated period.Tiwari had challenged the court's order before a division bench.

On November 12, 2010, the division bench too had dismissed 84-year-old Tiwari's plea challenging the single judge order to pay the amount.

Rohit Sharma had appealed for a DNA test of Tiwari as he was in a relationship with his mother Ujjwala Sharma. The High Court ordered Tiwari to undergo a DNA test for determination of Shekhar's paternity.

Now the Joint Registrar Deepak Garg has to decide on the mechanism to take the blood sample of Tiwari for the DNA test.
