Star Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh is in murky waters after his name was included in a case of alleged domestic violence. The complaint comes from his sister-in-law and Bigg Boss 10 contestant Akanksha Singh, who filed a complaint against not only Yuvraj Singh but also her husband Zoravar Singh and mother-in-law Shabnam Singh. Akanksha, who has been keeping mum about the whole issue, has decided to speak about it at the first hearing of the case on October 21, as confirmed by her lawyer Swati Singh Malik, according to Spotboy.
Speaking on the issue, Swati said, “Yes, Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, Zoravar and their mother Shabnam.”
Swati also said that Shabnam had recently filed a complaint against Akanksha for recovering a few assets. “This recovery could possibly be of some jewellery, it’s not of money,” she said.
When asked about Yuvraj’s involvement, 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 concluded.
Yuvraj, who recently failed the yo-yo fitness test is currently out of the Indian cricket team in all formats. The case, if proven to be true, could serve as a massive blow to his chances of making it back in the Blues. Yuvraj Singh has been a celebrated match-winner for India. He was the Man of the Series in the 2011 cricket World Cup and also played a pivotal role in the 2007 World T20 tournament, which India won.
