ND Tiwari's son Rohit Shekhar Tiwari had got engaged with Apurva Shukla in April, last year.

Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, son of former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, ND Tiwari, has passed away. According to reports, he was brought dead to Delhi Max Saket Hospital today. He was 40 years old. 

Rohit Shekhar Tiwari was resident of Delhi's Defence Colony area.

DCP South Delhi Vijay Kumar issued a statement to confirm the death. He said, "Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, son of late former Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand CM N D Tiwari, has been brought dead to Max Saket hospital."

Shekhar is survived by his wife, who he married last year. Apurva is a practicing lawyer in Supreme Court and hails from Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

In January 2017, Rohit Shekhar had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

He is the biological son of ND Tiwari and Ujjwala Sharma, who Tiwari married in 2014. ND Tiwari had passed away last year in October after prolonged illness at the age of 93. 

The veteran politician had accepted Rohit, who took him to court, as his son in 2016 after a long legal battle. The battle even reached Supreme Court before reconciliation.

Shekhar went to court against Tiwari in 2008, claiming he was born out of an affair between the veteran leader and his mother.
