The guilt-ridden girl has apologized to the family of her friend Pavani who was killed in the accident on the East Coast Road, Mahabalipuram on 25 July.

Warns Media for Spreading Fake News
A section of media had reported that she and her friends were under the influence and the accident occurred because Yashika was drunk driving. There were plenty of unconfirmed rumours around the incident.

She has now clarified the rumours that she was not drunk. On her Instagram page, she shared, "Law is same for everyone . For all the cheap people who have been spreading rumours about me being intoxicated while driving let me tell u the police confirmed we weren't drunk at all . And if I was I would have been behind the bars and not in hospital! Fake people spreading fake news has been going on from so long . But it's a sensitive issue . Hope u 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 sake of viewers and subscribers! Shame on u !

I've filled a defamation case already for ruining my name 2 years back . But these ople can go any extent for sake of gossip. [sic]"
