Veteran Congress leader N D Tiwari Tuesday approached the Delhi High Court seeking mediation in a paternity suit filed by a youth to declare Tiwari as his biological father.

Filing the application for mediation, Tiwari said that after fighting the legal battle from 2008, he wants to explore the possibility of "amicable settlement" in the interest of justice.

Tiwari also said that instead of fighting the paternity suit, he could have had the case settled out of court earlier with the intervention of a mediator.

In 2008, a man named Rohit Shekhar filed a paternity suit in the high court seeking to declare Tiwari as his biological father, a claim Tiwari has denied.
