Notice to Tiwari on 'paternity' suit

January 08, 2010 11:46 IST

The Delhi High Court has issued notice to veteran politician N D Tiwari on a paternity suit filed by a man claiming to be his biological son.

Tiwari was recently embroiled in a controversy over an alleged sex scandal. The veteran Congress leader, faces a few more controversies in his home state, Uttarakhand, of which he was the first elected chief minister.

Some leading non-government organisations (NGOs) are now planning to move the high court against him for showing extra benevolence in distributing freebies like land and money to several women, politicians and business houses.

It is an open secret that some top industrialists got prime land at Pantnagar, Sitarganj and Haridwar industrial estates at throwaway prices during his rule, the NGOs claim.
