Bigg Boss 10 contestant Akanksha Sharma has filed a case of domestic violence against her husband Zoravar Singh, mother-in-law Shabnam Singh and brother-in-law and cricketer Yuvraj Singh.

In her complaint, Akansha, among other allegations, has blamed the trio for mental torture, News 18 reported.

The police has filed an FIR and the first hearing is on October 21.

When asked about allegations against Yuvraj Singh, Akansksha's lawyer Swati Singh Malik told entertainment website SpotboyE.com, "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," she stated.

Swati also claimed that Akanksha's husband and mother-in-law were pressurising her to have a baby and Yuvraj also told her the same. "He was hand-in-glove with his mother," the lawyer said.

In the past, Akanksha has spoken about her troubled marriage on several occasions.

In an interview with Bollywood Life, last year, she had said, "Firstly, it wasn’t a marriage in the right sense. I was married only in paper. There was nothing in that relationship. I haven’t lied and I am pretty sure of whatever I have said. Nothing happened in my marriage. I am not backing off from what I said."

She also alleged substance abuse running in the family and accused her mother-in-law of being extremely controlling in nature.
