JANAKPUR: The High Court, Janakpur, has ordered to conduct DNA test of the child of Niharika Rajput of Jaleshwor in Mahottari and that of Shiva Raj Shrestha.

A division bench of judges– Bhojraj Adhikari and Rekha Pandey, issued this verdict on Wednesday.

Niharika has been demanding DNA test of her son and Shiva Raj since long.

Niharika had appealed at the High Court, Janakpur, after the District Court, Dhanusha, gave clean chit to accused Shiva Raj.

The case was fast-tracked after Niharika tried to commit suicide by self-immolation in front of the President’s Office in Kathmandu.

Police have already arrested the accused Shiva Raj Shrestha.
