Fresh ED summons to YouTuber Elvish Yadav in money laundering case, asked to appear on July 23

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sent a fresh summons to YouTuber Elvish Yadav, accused in the snake venom party case, and called him for questioning on July 23. The investigating agency had registered a case of money laundering against YouTuber Siddharth Yadav alias Elvish Yadav and some others. He is accused of using snake venom in his parties for entertainment.

The central agency has filed charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognizance of the FIR and chargesheet filed against him and others associated with him by Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddha Nagar (Noida) district police last month.

The alleged use of illicit funds to generate proceeds of crime and organize raves or entertainment parties is under the scanner of the ED. Sources said that as part of the investigation, Yadav and some other people related to the case will be interrogated.

The 26-year-old YouTuber, who is also the winner of the reality show Bigg Boss OTT 2, was booked by the Noida Police under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, Wildlife Protection Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Yadav was among six people named in the FIR lodged at Sector 49 police station in Noida on November 3 last year on the complaint of a representative of animal rights NGO People for Animals (PFA). Five other accused, all snake charmers, were arrested in November and later released on bail by a local court.

Five snake charmers were arrested from a banquet hall in Noida on November 3 last year and nine snakes, including five cobras, were rescued from their possession, while 20 ml of suspected snake venom was also seized. According to the police, Yadav was not present in the banquet hall at that time. In April, Noida Police filed an over 1,200-page chargesheet in the case. Police said that these allegations include smuggling of snakes, use of drugs and organizing rave parties.
