On Friday, the Noida Police had booked Yadav and arrested five people for the alleged use of snake venom at rave parties.

Nine snakes, including cobras, were rescued from the possession of the arrested accused who came to a banquet hall in Sector 51 on Thursday for a party, which was a trap laid by animal rights group People for Animals (PFA).

Elvish Yadav, a popular YouTuber and social media influencer, has refuted the charges and expressed his willingness to cooperate with police in the investigation.

Elvish Yadav (26) had taken to social media to refute the charges against him, dubbing them “baseless, fake and not even 1 per cent true”.

“I am ready to fully cooperate with the UP police. I also request the UP police, administration and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath that if my involvement is found, I will take full responsibility,” Yadav said, adding that he has nothing to do with the case.

Demanding Elvish Yadav’s immediate arrest, the former Union minister said her NGO, People For Animals (PFA), was keeping a watch on Yadav for a long time as he used snakes in his YouTube videos.
