The development came a day after Tiwari had invited Rohit and his Mother Ujjawala to his residence in Delhi.

In an interview to a news channel, he said, “I have accepted that Rohit Shekhar is my son.”

Expressing his delight, Rohit said that he is ready to forget all previous things and wants to spend some time with his father.

Rohit had filed a petition in 2008 claiming that the former Uttarakhand chief minister is his biological father. The Delhi High Court had then directed Tiwari to give blood sample for DNA test.

Tiwari had given blood sample for DNA test on May 29, 2012 at his residence in Dehradun following the Apex Court's order in the case, after repeatedly contesting against undergoing the test on various grounds.

In his affidavit, 88-year-old leader Tiwari said that ‘the plaintiff is not my natural son out of any physical, emotional or sexual relations with his mother as I was having no relations of whatsoever nature at any point of time with her’.

Tiwari had also rejected the DNA test report against him.

“Mere placing on record the certified copy of the DNA test report is not enough. Even the test was not conducted according to requisite requirements of conducting the same. I, therefore, deny the same,” he said.
