Indian politician ND Tiwari fathered illegitimate son
A 31-year-old Indian man is the son born out of wedlock of senior politician ND Tiwari, DNA tests show.
The Delhi High Court ordered the tests after Rohit Shekhar filed a paternity suit against the politician.
Mr Shekhar had argued that his mother, Ujjwala Sharma, had a relationship with Mr Tiwari, who is now 86.
The politician, a prominent member of India's governing Congress party, had dismissed the case as an attempt to malign his reputation.
He opposed an earlier court order to give a blood sample, saying he could not be forced.
But the High Court ruled that police help could be sought to collect his DNA if he resisted.
On Friday it rejected arguments from the politician's lawyer that the DNA test result should be kept secret in order "to protect his reputation".
Mr Tiwari has been a federal minister in past governments and also the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state.
In 2009, he resigned as the governor of the southern state of Andhra Pradesh after video footage surfaced allegedly showing Mr Tiwari in bed with three women.
His office denied the allegation, saying that the video had been doctored.
Mr Tiwari was married but his wife died in 1993. The couple had no children together.
