Elvish Yadav’s Reaction
Elvish Yadav took to social media to respond to the news reports claiming he was attacked by a mob in Jammu. He expressed his thoughts on the fake narrative being spread by reporters and said, “Jab tak aise news wale zinda hai fake narrative chalte rahenge. Mere pe haath uthane wale jis din paida hoge, kalyung ka ant aa lega (Fake narrative will continue to thrive till such reporters are there. The day someone, who can slap me is born, that day kalyug will end). Cheers.”
Elvish Yadav and Raghav Sharma visited the Vaishno Devi temple in Jammu on December 20. A video of the incident showed the duo being mobbed by people as they seemingly stepped out of the temple. In the video, some people were seen grabbing Raghav’s collar and dragging him, while Elvish fled.
According to reports, a man had asked Elvish Yadav and Raghav Sharma to take pictures with him, but they refused. This angered the man, and he grabbed Raghav’s collar, leading to the altercation. The situation escalated quickly as more people joined in and attacked the duo.
Snake Venom Case
Elvish Yadav was booked in a snake venom case in Noida earlier in November. The police had gotten the remand of Rahul, the main accused arrested in connection to the case, in which Elvish was also booked. The FIR was filed under sections 9, 39, 48A, 49, 50, and 51 of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, and also under section 120-B of the IPC.
As per police reports, the FIR was registered against six people, including Elvish Yadav, for making available snake venom at rave parties. They used to reportedly collect a hefty sum of money for supplying the venom at parties. Nine snakes, including five cobras, a red snake, a python, and two other snakes, were also rescued in the raid.
