Noida Police files 1200-Page chargesheet against YouTuber Elvish Yadav under snake venom case

The charge sheet also included the statements of 24 witnesses and seven other additional charges.

On Saturday (April 6), the Noida Police filed a 1200-page chargesheet against prominent YouTuber and Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner Elvish Yadav and seven others in the Surajpur court. According to media sources, authorities included the accounts of 24 witnesses in the charge sheet.

Cops are currently compiling data on cases filed against the YouTuber in Noida and Gurugram. According to reports, the chargesheet includes a report from a Jaipur laboratory that confirms snake venom analysis.


According to reports, recordings from the snake venom case, call logs, and extra electronic data served as core proof.

In November 2023, a FIR was filed against Elvish, resulting in the arrest of eight people, including five snake charmers. In March 2024, three additional people, including Elvish, were detained in connection with the case.

Days after Elvish was detained and taken into custody, a second FIR was filed against the notorious YouTuber for allegedly displaying illegal snakes in one of his music videos.

Saurabh Gupta, an animal rights activist, contacted the court last month to complain about the snakes in his music video, and the Gurugram Police filed a FIR against him.

The Noida Police detained Elvish on March 17 after claiming to have discovered evidence linking the YouTuber to the snake venom case. Elvish has been accused of procuring and delivering snake venom to rave events in Gurugram and Noida. While he fiercely disputed the claims, police indicated that they had sufficient evidence against him.

Elvish was released from jail on bail on March 22, just in time for Holi. Meanwhile, the YouTuber has been charged under various parts of the Indian Penal Code and the Wildlife Protection Act, and an investigation into the snake venom case is ongoing.
