New Delhi: The Local Commissioner, appointed by Delhi High Court, on Monday fixed August 21 for veteran Congress leader ND Tiwari’s cross examination. The case relates to a paternity suit filed by a youth claiming Tiwari as his biological father.

In January this year, the High Court had appointed Retired Additional District Judge SM Chopra as local commissioner and ordered recording of evidence in the matter on a day-to-day basis.

Chopra, who concluded the cross examination of plaintiff Rohit Shekhar, asked Tiwari to file the affidavit in evidence within four weeks.

Meanwhile, the counsel for Tiwari submitted that his client has a plan to move an application before the court seeking an order to conduct the cross examination outside Delhi.

The High Court had on July 27 last year read out the DNA report in the case as per which Tiwari was shown as Shekhar's biological father. Tiwari had given blood sample for the DNA test on May 29, 2012 at his residence in Dehradun following the Apex Court's order in the case.
