Former contestant of popular reality show Bigg Boss, Akanksha Sharma, has filed a case of domestic violence against India all-rounder and her brother-in-law Yuvraj Singh, who has been struggling to make a return to the Indian team.
According to a report in Spotboye.com, Akanksha, who participated in the 10th edition of Bigg Boss, hosted by Salman Khan, has filed a case of domestic violence against her husband Zoravar Singh, mother-in-law Shabnam Singh and brother-in-law Yuvraj.
While Akanksha didn't want to speak on the matter before October 21 - the date of first hearing - her lawyer has confirmed the development.
"Yes, Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, her husband Zoravar and their mother Shabnam," Akansha's lawyer Swati Singh Malik was quoted as saying in the report.
Her lawyer also said that Shabnam had recently filed a suit against Akanksha for recovery of some jewellery. "This recovery could possibly be of some jewellery, it's not of money," she said.
When asked about the involvement of Yuvraj in the matter, the lawyer 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.
"When Yuvraj and Zoravar's mother was pressurising Akanksha to have a baby, Yuvraj too had joined in to do the same. He too told Akanksha 'to have a baby'. He was hand-in-glove with his mother. Yuvraj would even tell her that she should obey his mother because she was the most superior person in the house. That lady is extremely dominant. Zoravar and Akanksha were at her mercy for every decision," she further said.
