The controversy around flower pot thieves of Shankar Chowk area in Gurugram is not dialling down anytime soon as a new twist has come to the fore on Wednesday. After the Kia Carnival car was linked to YouTuber Elvish Yadav, a video of a journalist from Delhi has surfaced on social media wherein he is seen claiming that Yadav made him come down to Gurugram and has been rescheduling his requests for an interview. Utkarsh Singh has also claimed that inspite of knowing it for a fact that Elvish; who roams around with a bunch of people, can harm him, he came down to Gurugram to interview Yadav and yet the latter made him chase himself changing locations of the interview. Upon confrontation, Yadav got frustrated and started abusing the journo.

On the other had, Elvish Yadav has denied owning the Kia Carnival car. He has said that just because he was seen in this car once, doesn't make him the owner of the vehicle.
The journalist had claimed that Yadav had threatened him with defamation lawsuit over dragging his name in the flower pot theft matter.
Elvish Yadav releases video of phone call
In the context of the journalist trying to interview Yadav, even the latter has released a video shot by him in his car with his speaker phone on. Yadav is purportedly speaking to Utkarsh Singh, who had come down to interview him on the flower pot theft news that has been in the headlines since the past couple of days.
In this video, Elvish Yadav is talking to Utkarsh Singh, whom he calls a 'self claimed reporter'. Yadav is heard repeatedly asking Singh if he wants to interview him and Singh is heard replying to him saying, why he (ELvish Yadav) is running away from him and not meeting up. Yadav even mocks the journalist who can be heard commenting on his moral values. He shouts on him asking him in a very rude tone if he wants to interview him. The journalist at one point says, "Dhang ke aadmi se paala nhi pada hai tumhara abtak," (you haven't met the right kind of person yet in your life).
