Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s name was drawn in for all the wrong reasons in the domestic violence case against his brother Zoraver, but with the case recently resolved following an apology by the accuser, Yuvraj’s family stated that he can now begin to heal.

Yuvraj Singh was named in the domestic violence case registered by his brother’s ex-wife Akanksha Sharma.


After a four year legal battle, Akansha and Zoraver got separated and the former put forth an apology to Yuvraj and his family for making fallacious claims against them.

“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 Akanksha Sharma has apologised and admitted all her allegations to be false and incorrect and withdrawn the same,” the family stated.


Akanksha filed a complaint against Yuvraj and his mother in 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 Yuvraj’s familty 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.
