New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Thursday closed the right to lead the evidence of veteran Congress leader ND Tiwari in a paternity suit after he failed to appear for cross-examination before the local commissioner in his last opportunity.


Former additional district judge SM Chopra, appointed local commissioner by the high court for recording evidence on day-to-day basis, returned the case to the court after Tiwari failed to appear.

"The situation is such that the witness (Tiwari) is not present for his cross-examination in terms of the order of the division bench and he has not been appearing before the commissioner as already directed by the court.

"In the given circumstances, it does not make any sense to adjourn the matter for day-to-day recording of evidence by the Commissioner," the commissioner said in the order.
