Sister-in-law Akansha Sharma has filed a domestic violence case against Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and his family.

According to reports in Spoteboye, Akanksha has filed a domestic violence case against husband Zoravar Singh, mother-in-law Shabnam Singh and brother-in-law Yuvraj Singh, the first hearing of which will be held on October 21.

"Yes, Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, Zoravar and their mother Shabnam,” Spoteboye reported quoting Akansha's lawyer Swati Malik.

Swati also said that Shabnam had recently filed a complaint against Akanksha for recovery of some jewellery in all likelihood. “This recovery could possibly be of some jewellery, it’s not of money,” she said.

Asked how Yuvraj was involved, 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.”

"There was domestic violence on emotional and financial grounds too. Let me elaborate. Akanksha was asked to get up at 5 am and make tea, when there were 3 cooks in that house," she added.

The lawyer also said that at times Akansha was slapped and pushed by her husband and mother-in-laws.
