Popular YouTuber and the winner of Bigg Boss OTT Elvish Yadav was arrested by Noida Police on Sunday in the alleged use of snake venom case. Elvish Yadav was called for questioning by the police today, after which he was arrested and will be presented in court today.

Six people, including YouTuber Elvish Yadav, were booked under the Wildlife (Protection) Act and Section 120A (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code for allegedly providing snake venom for a party in Noida’s Sector 51 which was a sting operation by Maneka Gandhi's People for Animals. The other five were arrested and Elvish's role in the rave party and in procuring snakes for such parties was being probed.

Forensic investigation revealed the use of the venom of cobra and krait species of snakes in samples seized from the party.

People for Animals conducted a sting operation to unravel the misuse of rare animals and got in touch with Elvish Yadav as they had a tip-off that he has a network of people involved in this. According to the complaint, Elvish helped them by providing contacts who finally arranged snake venom. Elvish posed with snakes in his videos.

Elvish Yadav was questioned regarding the case for several rounds but he refuted all allegations.

Nine snakes were found from the party which was a sting operation by the People For Animals and all of them had their venom glands removed. Eight of the nine snakes had their teeth missing.

The rave party case goes back to November 3 last year; the party was held at a banquet hall in Noida Sector 51. Elvish was not present at the party.

Elvish was recently embroiled in another controversy after his video of beating up YouTuer Maxtern, also known as Sagar Thakur, went viral. After an FIR was filed against Elvish in Gurugram, Elvish issued a statement explaining why he thrashed Maxtern.
