Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner and YouTuber Elvish Yadav appeared before Noida police late Tuesday night (November 7) in connection with a snake venom case, police said. On Wednesday, he took to his official Instagram account to reveal that he has fallen sick.
Hours after the interrogation, Elvish wrote on his Instagram story, "No vlog today guys, not well. Kal se dobara mast chalu," and added a folded hand emoticon.
According to ANI, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Noida, Harish Chander said on Wednesday, "YouTuber and Bigg Boss winner Elvish Yadav appeared before the Noida police late at night in connection with the snake venom case. Police have called him again."
Elvish was questioned after being named in the FIR filed in the case along with five others. The FIR was registered against six people including Elvish Yadav in Noida Sector 49 police station for allegedly supplying snake venom at a rave party in Noida.
The case was transferred from Noida's Sector 49 police station to Sector 20 police station on the orders of Gautam Buddha Nagar Police Commissioner Lakshmi Singh.
On November 4, Elvish was briefly detained in Kota, Rajasthan, in connection with the case.
Based on information received from the NGO People for Animals, which is associated with Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maneka Gandhi, Noida Police conducted an operation on Friday (November 3) and arrested five individuals involved in a snake venom selling racket.
However, Elvish has been strongly denying the allegations. He also expressed willingness to cooperate with the police investigation. In response, Maneka Gandhi stated that her NGO's investigation began with Elvish, who then provided contacts for his agents involved in snake venom activities.
A few days back, Elvish also threatened to file a defamation case against Maneka Gandhi. In one of his recent vlogs, Elvish blamed the politician for ruining his image. He also stated that the truth will be out very soon.
Elvish rose to fame after winning the controversial reality show Bigg Boss OTT 2 which was hosted by Bollywood actor Salman Khan. After lifting the winner's trophy, Elvish appeared in the music video 'Hum Toh Deewane,' alongside model-actress Urvashi Rautela.
