Elvish Yadav, the popular YouTuber Siddharth Yadav, has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning on July 23 in connection with a high-profile money laundering case. This case centers on allegations that snake venom was used at parties reportedly hosted by Elvish Yadav, according to official sources.

Initially slated to appear before the ED in Lucknow this week, Elvish Yadav requested a postponement of his summons citing prior international travel plans and professional commitments. Consequently, the central agency rescheduled his appearance for July 23, where he is expected to depose before the investigating officers.

Recently, Rahul Yadav, also known as Rahul Fazilpuriya, a singer from Haryana purportedly linked to Elvish Yadav, was questioned by the ED in connection with the same case. Sources indicate that further questioning of Rahul Yadav may follow in the ongoing investigation.

The ED’s probe focuses on alleged activities involving the generation of illicit funds and their purported use in organizing rave parties or other recreational events. This investigation stems from an FIR and subsequent charge sheet filed against Elvish Yadav and others by the police in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddh Nagar district earlier this year.

Elvish Yadav, a controversial figure known for his YouTube content and winner of reality show Bigg Boss OTT 2, had previously been arrested by the Noida police on charges related to the alleged use of snake venom for recreational purposes during parties. The case against him includes multiple charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, Wildlife Protection Act, and sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

In November last year, an FIR was filed against six individuals, including Elvish Yadav, following a complaint by People for Animals (PFA), an NGO. The charges primarily involved alleged trafficking of snakes, use of psychotropic substances, and organizing illegal parties. While five snake charmers were arrested and subsequently released on bail, Elvish Yadav was not present during the raid where snakes and suspected snake venom were seized.

The Noida police had filed a comprehensive chargesheet in April, detailing their investigations into the matter, which included evidence related to the alleged illegal activities.

The developments surrounding Elvish Yadav have sparked significant public interest, with the ED’s forthcoming interrogation scheduled to shed further light on the ongoing legal proceedings and the allegations against him.
