Yashika Aannand took to Instagram to share her first post after the car accident which killed her best friend Pavani. On July 25, a car driven by Yashika met with a fatal accident that claimed her best friend's life and left her seriously injured. She had multiple surgeries on her hip and leg. In another social media post, Yashika slammed media and YouTube channels that are coming up with their conspiracy theories.
In the statement, she said, "Law is same for everyone. For all the cheap people who have been spreading rumors about me being intoxicated while driving, let me tell you the police confirmed we weren't drunk at all. And if I was, I would have been behind the bars and not in the hospital! Fake people spreading fake news has been going on for so long. But it's a sensitive issue. Hope you show some humanity and show some grief towards her! Even the doctor reports would say the same! These fake media channels spreading fake news for the sake of viewers and subscribers! Shame on you! I've filed a defamation case already for ruining my name 2 years back. But these people can go to any extent for the sake of gossip (sic)."
