New Delhi: ND Tiwari moved the Supreme Court challenging the dismissal of his plea in Delhi High Court. Tiwari demanded that his DNA report should not be disclosed by the Delhi High Court which is due to open the same on 27th of July.

Tiwari had given his blood sample for the DNA test on May 29 at his residence in Dehradun following a Supreme Court order in the case.

Referring to one of the Supreme Court orders, the application said that it has been made clear that the DNA report will remain confidential till the conclusion of "reasonable appropriate and proportionate trial."

Hyderabad-based Centre For DNA Finger Prints and Diagnostic has recently submitted in sealed cover the DNA reports of Tiwari, Rohit and his mother Ujjawala Sharma before the Delhi High Court.

The High Court, in its April 27 order, had ordered Tiwari to undergo the DNA test in the paternity suit and had also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the veteran leader.

The paternity suit was filed by 32-year-old Rohit Shekhar in 2008 seeking the court's direction to declare the Congress leader his biological father.
