The Delhi high court on Wednesday ordered its registrar to take police assistance for bringing veteran Congress leader ND Tiwari, so his blood sample could be taken with regard to a paternity suit.

"Joint Registrar (JR) shall be entitled to avail police assistance in case the defendant is not available... The JR shall seek police assistance," justice Reva Khetrapal said.

The court came down heavily on the counsel, representing the 86-year-old Dehradun-based Congress leader, after he sought adjournment of hearing on the ground that a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court on the issue.

Referring to various judgements delivered by single-judge division benches of the high court and the Supreme Court in the matter, justice Khetrapal said, "It has already been made clear that pendency of a special leave petition in the Supreme Court will not come in the way of the proceedings of the case".

The court fixed the matter for further hearing on May 21 before the Joint Registrar, who in turn will fix the date for collection of the blood sample from Tiwari.
