In a post on Instagram on Friday, Elvish Yadav asserted that all of the accusations made against him about the alleged usage of snake venom at a Noida rave party were untrue.
Yadav said in his Instagram post that “all allegations against me are fake, holding not even 1 percent authenticity.” Elvish Yadav further pleaded in a video message shared on the social media site that his reputation shouldn’t be damaged.
The Bigg Boss OTT champion declared that he was prepared to assist the Uttar Pradesh Police with their probe into the matter.
“If I am found guilty, I will take accountability,” stated Yadav.
In addition to arresting Elvish Yadav in this instance, the Noida Police have detained five individuals for allegedly using snake venom during the rave party.
The arrestees had set up a trap set by People for Animals (PFA), an animal rights organization, to catch nine snakes in their hands when they arrived at a banquet hall in Sector 51 on Thursday night for the celebration, news agency PTI said. An FIR was filed for criminal conspiracy and under the Wildlife (Protection) Act after Yadav and six other individuals were accused by PFA of partying at a banquet facility in Sector 51 where snake venom was provided, according to police. Residents of Moharband village in Badarpur, southeast Delhi, Rahul (32), Teetunath (45), Jaikaran (50), Narayan (50), and Ravinath (45) were among those held captive, according to police.
Fans rushed to read more and learn more specifics about the case as soon as the news leaked on social media. Here’s all you need to know about the YouTuber before we give you a brief update on the case.
Elvish Yadav is a Gurugram-based Indian singer, streamer, and YouTuber. Salman Khan presented the reality show ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’, which brought Elvish to the attention of the country. He was a wild card participant when he first appeared in the competition. Since starting his YouTube channel in 2016, Elvish has amassed 13.2 million subscribers and 1.16 billion views on the main site as of August 2023. At first, he renamed his channel The Social Factory instead of Elvish Yadav. His writing primarily concentrates on flash fiction and creative short films.
Police began investigating the matter after receiving a report from Gaurav Gupta, an Animal Welfare Officer of the People for Animals (PFA) NGO. Gupta said that Elvish and other content makers had shot movies in Noida farmhouses featuring snakes and venom.
According to the PFA officer, these individuals also threw illicit rave parties where foreign ladies were invited to use drugs, including snake venom. Following their discovery of Gaurav Gupta’s allegation, Maneka Gandhi’s PFA contacted Elvish Yadav. “We got to know because influencer Elvish Yadav has been promoting it (the videos),” Maneka Gandhi stated in an interview. We must put him under arrest.
