"People do anything to remain in the headlines."

YouTuber and Bigg Boss OTT winner Elvish Yadav has been booked by the Noida Police for using snake venom at rave parties.

He has since issued a statement denying all the charges and assuring cooperation with the UP Police.

Nine snakes, including five cobras, and snake venom were recovered from the accused, officials said, adding that the snakes have been handed to the Forest Department.

They would catch snakes from different places in the region and extract their venom, which they allegedly sold at a high price.

BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, whose NGO filed the complaint against the famous influencer, issued a statement and asked if Elvish Yadav was not guilty, then why he was on the run.

Maneka said: “This is a grade 1 crime, seven years in jail, a wildlife crime.

“King cobras die when their venom is taken out. Their venom is for digesting food.

“Without the venom, they can’t eat anything and thus they die.

“There are very few cobras and pythons in the country. It is a crime to own them, catch them or use them.”

There could be a bigger racket behind this, Maneka Gandhi added.

Demanding Elvish Yadav’s immediate arrest, Maneka Gandhi said her NGO was keeping watch on Elvish Yadav for a long time as he used snakes in his YouTube videos:

“Then we found out that they sell snake venom.”

On Elvish Yadav’s statement that he is innocent, Maneka Gandhi said:

“That’s why he is absconding? People do anything to remain in the headlines.

“Snake venom leads to liver and kidney failure and then the brain becomes dizzy. So you feel dizzy.”

Elvish Yadav said all allegations are baseless and fake.

In a statement, Elvish said: “I will take the responsibility if even 1% of my involvement in this is proved.

“Media should also stay away from defaming me unless my involvement is probed.”

Reacting to Maneka Gandhi’s statement against him, Elvish tweeted:

“Shocked to see such people sitting on such posts. The way she is accusing me, she should be ready for apologising as well.”

According to the complaint filed by People For Animals, the NGO run by Maneka Gandhi contacted Elvish Yadav and asked him to organise a rave party and get cobra venom.

The complaint said: “Elvish gave us the name of one Rahul whom we contacted.

“He said he could organise the venom wherever we want.

“He then came to Sector 51 Banquet Hall with the venom.

“The Noida police then came to the venue along with the DFO and arrested the organisers.”

“The five people were arrested and they named Elvish Yadav.”

Elvish Yadav shot to fame after winning Bigg Boss OTT Season 2 earlier this year.

He has 7.51 million subscribers on YouTube and 15.6 million followers on Instagram.
