Noida Police arrested Elvish Yadav on March 17 in a snake venom case.

Elvish Yadav, winner of Bigg Boss OTT 2, was arrested by Noida Police on March 17, 2024, in connection with a snake venom case. Later, he was placed in judicial custody for 14 days in connection with a case under the 1972 Wild Life Protection Act.

On March 22, the Noida Police granted Elvish bail in the snake venom case. Munawar Faruqui responded to this by speaking with the paparazzi about his thoughts on Elvish’s bail. He expressed his excitement, saying, “It is good for him, I saw his mom and dad and I know how it feels. Good news hai, so I am happy for him.”


Meanwhile, Munawar was arrested in 2021 on charges of offending Hindu religious sensitivities with a remark delivered during a stand-up comedy performance.

He had been arrested along with four others following a complaint submitted by Eklavya Singh Gaud, the son of a BJP MP. Munawar was given bail after being in jail for 37 days.

Talking about Elvish’s bail, his lawyer Prashant Rathi told PTI on Friday, “The court heard the bail application and granted bail in the case. He will have to furnish two bail bonds of Rs 50,000 each which would be submitted in the court.We have initiated legal proceedings. We would apply for provisional acceptance of the bail bonds so that release order is issued at the earliest. It may be issued tonight or may take a few days, considering court will be closed for Holi holidays from tomorrow.”
