Cricketer Yuvraj Singh, his mother Shabnam Singh and brother Zoravar Singh have been booked for domestic violence by sister-in-law Akanksha Sharma, who was also a Bigg Boss contestant in last season of the reality show.
Akanksha has filed case against her husband Zoravar Singh, mother-in-law Shabnam Singh but also brother-in-law cricketer Yuvraj Singh.
Akanksha told the entertainment website SpotboyE.com that she would speak on the matter after 21 October, which is the date for the first hearing.
Her lawyer Swati Singh Malik said, “Yes, Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, her husband Zoravar and their mother Shabnam.”
On the other hand, Malik said that in another recent development, Akanksha’s mother-in-law had filed a suit against Akanksha for recovery. “This recovery could possibly be of some jewellery, it’s not of money,” she told SpotboyE.com this afternoon.
When asked why she had slapped a domestic violence case Yuvraj, Malik said, “Look, domestic violence does not mean just physical violence. It also means mental and financial torture, which can be attributed to Yuvraj. Yuvraj was a mute spectator to the suffering caused to my client by Zoravar and his mother.”
“Yuvraj would even tell her that she should obey his mother because she was the most superior person in the house. Really, that lady is extremely dominant. Zoravar and Akanksha were at her mercy for every decision,” he added.
However, a source close to Yuvaraj family said that Akanksha decided to drag the famous cricketer after he refused to pay her money.
“She’s long been asking for money. When he refused, she dragged him in her divorce/domestic violence case,” said the source.
