The case

After a four-year legal battle, Akanksha and Zoraver got divorced earlier this month and the former apologized 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 Akanksha Sharma has apologized and admitted all her allegations to be false and incorrect and withdrawn the same," the family stated. Yuvraj and his mother Shabnam Singh were named in the domestic violence complaint filed by Akanksha in a Gurugram court in October 2017.
