Elvish Yadav Denies Allegations After FIR, Calls Snake Venom Charges 'False'
Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner and popular YouTuber Elvish Yadav was surrounded by controversy after an FIR was filed against him. In response to these allegations, Elvish Yadav took to Instagram to share his side of the story, stating that all accusations against him are baseless and false.
He also expressed his willingness to cooperate with the police in their investigation. However, BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, whose NGO filed the complaint, questioned why Elvish was allegedly absconding if he was innocent.
Rave Party Raid and Snake Venom allegations
Earlier in the day, the Noida Police uncovered a rave party taking place in Sector-49, in which Elvish Yadav was reportedly involved. During the raid, five of his associates were taken into custody, and a shocking discovery was made - they were found in possession of snake venom and various poisonous snakes, which they purportedly used during their rave parties. The police report indicated that five cobras, one python, one two-headed snake, and a rat snake were confiscated from their possession.
Maneka Gandhi's NGO and Snake Venom distribution
Maneka Gandhi's NGO had been monitoring Elvish Yadav for some time, as he had been known to use snakes in his YouTube videos. Their investigation led them to the discovery that snake venom was being sold. Maneka Gandhi emphasized the dangers associated with snake venom, explaining that it can lead to severe health issues, including liver and kidney failure, and dizziness.
FIR Lodged Under Wildlife (Protection) Act
The FIR filed against Elvish Yadav and his associates was done so under the provisions of the Wildlife (Protection) Act and for criminal conspiracy. The complaint was lodged by the People for Animals (PFA) organization against six individuals, including Yadav, for their involvement in partying at a banquet hall in Sector 51, where snake venom was made available.
The individuals taken into custody during the raid have been identified as Rahul, Teetunath, Jaikaran, Narayan, and Ravinath, all residents of Moharband village in southeast Delhi's Badarpur.
