ED summons Elvish Yadav in relation to money laundering case- Check details here   

Bigg Boss OTT fame Elvish Yadav is not new to legal warrants. Yadav has been  in the headlines since last year due to his alleged involvement regarding the snake venom case. He has received a summoning issue from the Enforcement Directorate for questioning.  The YouTuber has been asked to present at the Lunknow unit of ED on the 23rd of July. Elvish will be questioned regarding the money laundering case, which involved the illegal use of snake venom during rave parties.

The complaint was filed against him by Gautam Buddha Nagar Police. Elvish Yadav was earlier summoned to appear before the authorities on the 8th of July. However, he stated that he wouldn’t be able to make his appearance due to a foreign trip, which collided with the respective date. ED remarked that Elvish has been given relaxation and is told to appear during the next meeting.


Earlier this year, on the 17th of March, Elvish was arrested and was kept under a 14 day judicial custody. He was released on bail after five days. The YouTuber was charged with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Six months after the FIR was filed, the Gautam Buddha Nagar Police filed a chargesheet. The file contained detailed explanation of how the snakes were smuggler and their venom was used at parties for recreational purposes.

When Elvish Yadav was questioned regarding the matter, he denied the charges. Elvish stated his non-affiliation with the case. Later on, the police dropped the charges.
