Sharma’s lawyer Swati Singh Malik confirmed, “It’s true. Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, Zoravar and mother Shabnam.” He added to clarify the involvement of Yuvraj in this case, “Domestic violence doesn’t mean only physical violence, it can be mental or financial too. Yuvraj was a silent spectator of the sufferings of my client forced by her husband and mother in law.”

Swati Singh Malik also revealed, “When her mother in law Shabnam was pressurizing Akanksha to conceive baby, Yuvraj had joined too. He told Akanksha ‘to have a baby’. He was hand-in-glove with his mother.” He added, “Yuvraj would even tell Akanksha that she should obey his mother because she was the most superior person in the house, otherwise she would have no place in their house.”

Akanksha is supposed to be on court for the first hearing on this case on October 21. She refused to speak to media about this before that day. But his husband Zoravar Singh confirmed about being accused, though none of Yuvraj’s family expressed any clarification statement.

But on the other hand Akanksha had also been a subject to a legal complaint by Shabnam. It was regarding the recovery of some of the jewellery but not money, ensured Akanksha’s lawyer.

This is not the first time, earlier on last year; Akanksha claimed Yuvraj and her mother for the separation with her husband Zoravar. She also claimed that Yuvraj used to take marijuana.
