New Delhi: On Tuesday, Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, son for former Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand chief minister ND Tiwari, passed away at the age of 40. Rohit’s mother Ujjwala Tiwari told reporters that she believed that her son’s death was “natural” and “not suspicious” but added that he was depressed because of a few people in his life. Speaking to reporters last night, Ujjwala said, “His death is natural, I have no suspicion. But my son was depressed because of a few people and I will reveal it later.” 40-year-old Rohit was brought dead at Max Hospital in Saket in south Delhi on Tuesday evening. Tiwari was a resident of Defence Colony in the national capital and lived with his mother, wife and brother. As per DCP (South) Vijay Kumar, he was brought to the hospital in an ambulance at around 5 pm, but the doctors pronounced him dead on his arrival.
Here it is to be noted that his mother Ujjwala was at the same hospital last evening when she received a call from her other son, Siddharth, that Rohit was “unwell and was bleeding from nose” at home, as per reports. She rushed back to her residence in an ambulance from the hospital and returned with her son, however, he was later declared brought dead. Max Hospital said in a statement yesterday "We received an emergency call from the residence of Rohit Shekhar Tiwari at 04:41 pm this afternoon. An ambulance brought him to Max Hospital, Saket, where he was declared ''brought dead'' at the hospital emergency. As per the established procedure, we have informed the authorities. We express condolences at the passing away of Mr Tiwari," As per local reports, cops indicated that no external injuries were found on Tiwari’s body. Speculations were also rife that Tiwari could have suffered a brain haemorrhage.
However it is worth mention here that Rohit Tiwari had fought a six-year-long paternity battle to prove that he was late Congress leader ND Tiwari’s son, who had initially refused to accept him as his own. However, following the protracted battle and DNA tests, ND Tiwari accepted him in 2016. The senior Tiwari passed away at the age of 93 on October 18, which happened to be his birthday, last year. Meanwhile, Rohit had joined the BJP prior to the 2017 Uttarakhand Assembly polls, however, recent reports suggested that he was mulling the option to join the Congress.
