As per reports, Yuvika was booked by Haryana Police in the month of May after Rajat Kalsan, a Dalit rights activist, filed a complaint in Hansi, Haryana against her and raised allegations of making some derogatory and objectionable remarks about the SC community in the video

In a YouTube Vlog, she apparently made an offensive remark towards the community, which she deleted after getting huge backlash. In the video, she was getting ready to go out with her husband and Bigg Boss fame Prince Narula, when she described her look as not up to the mark by using the slur. She later took to her Instagram to clarify that she was not knowing that the word she used was a casteist slur.

She wrote, “Hi guys I didn’t kw the meaning about that word wt I used in my last vlog I didn’t mean to hurt anyone and I can never do that to hurt someone I apologise to each n every one I hope you understand love you all (sic).”
