On a law suit filed in 2008 by Rohit Shekhar,32, claiming Tiwari as his biological father, the high court had directed the former Andhra Pradesh Governor 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 "the plaintiff (Rohit) 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 rejected the DNA test report against him saying "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."

Claiming that he was leading a blissful life with his legally married wife, Tiwari alleged it is a concoction by Rohit's mother.

".....We, being a childless couple, were fond of children and kept inviting a lot of children to our home and spent happy moments with them," he said adding "the DNA report is just based on a chance....The DNA report is not proved by Rohit or his mother according to law.

Dismissing the photographs produced by Ujjwala Sharma, Tiwari said " photograph established even close relation of mine with defendant 2(Sharma)."

Tiwari contended the suit was to tarnish his image and the allegations are "absolutely obnoxious" and sought the paternity suit
