False Allegations: Domestic Violence Case Against Cricketer Yuvraj Singh Closed

In a big relief for cricketer Yuvraj Singh whose name was dragged for “malafide” reasons in the domestic violence case against his brother Zoraver has recently got settled after an apology by the accuser.

Yuvraj was named in the domestic violence case filed by his brother’s estranged wife Akanksha Sharma. After the settlement of the matter, the family on September 11, 2019, said that the cricketer can now begin to “heal”.

After a four-year legal battle, Akanksha and Zoraver got divorced earlier this month and the former apologised to Yuvraj and his family for making false allegations against them. Zoraver and Akanksha’s marriage lasted a mere six months.

“Finding no other way to escape the process of law against her, Ms. Akanksha Sharma has apologised and admitted all her allegations to be false and incorrect and withdrawn the same,” the family said.

Apart from Yuvraj, his mother Shabnam Singh was also named in the domestic violence complaint filed by Akanksha in a Gurugram court in October 2017.

“The only perspective that we wish to put forth is that we were vulnerable targets as one of the family members i.e. Yuvraj Singh was, and is adored and loved by millions,” said the family in a statement.

“His great reputation was put at stake for personal malafide reasons in the most unfair manner in the hope of gaining some kind of advantage which was not otherwise due.

“We can only feel proud of Yuvraj Singh yet again, who has always decided to fight back with unshakable faith in God and the judiciary of this great country,” it added.
