A significant controversy erupted on Friday when an FIR was lodged against Elvish Yadav, the winner of Bigg Boss OTT Season 2. The Noida Police initiated this FIR after conducting a sting operation at a high-profile rave party held in sector 49.
At the Noida Rave Party, the police apprehended at least six individuals, and based on their statements, filed the FIR against Elvish Yadav, the Bigg Boss OTT Season 2 victor. During the raid, a discovery was made of numerous poisonous snakes and snake venoms. However, Elvish Yadav swiftly posted a video on social media refuting all allegations, labeling them as false and groundless.
Amidst this controversy, a leaked video from the Elvish Yadav Rave Party began circulating widely on social media platforms. In this leaked footage, the YouTuber was observed holding a snake and singing a song alongside a foreign girl. Many social media users contended that the leaked sting video from the Elvish Yadav Rave Party exposed his dishonesty, although the Bigg Boss OTT Season 2 winner promptly debunked these claims.
Elvish took to Instagram to clarify that the viral leaked video from the Elvish Yadav Rave Party was at least six months old, stating, “This scene is from a music video…6 months old…Don’t believe in everything.”
It’s worth noting that Maneka Gandhi, a BJP Member of Parliament and the founder of People for Animals (PFA), responded to the incident, advocating for immediate arrest, saying, “He (Elvish) should be arrested immediately. This is a grade-I crime – that means seven years in jail…PFA laid a trap and caught these people. He uses endangered species of snakes in his videos. Later we got to know that he sells snake venom in Noida and Gurugram.”
In response to the FIR, Elvish Yadav released a video on his social media platform, vehemently denying all allegations. He expressed, “When I woke up in the morning I saw what kind of news is being flashed. There are media reports saying that Elvish Yadav has been arrested, and Elvish Yadav peddling narcotics substance. I want to say that whatever allegations and charges are leveled against me are baseless and fake.”
The charges against Elvish Yadav include allegations of providing snake venom at rave parties, organizing illegal shoots and parties, and inviting foreign guests to consume snake venoms and intoxicants. Multiple arrests were made during the raid, and various snakes were rescued. The FIR was registered under relevant sections of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
