Elvish Yadav, the winner of Bigg Boss OTT 2, has reportedly been summoned by the Lucknow unit of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case related to an incident involving snake venom.

This case, initially registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) following an FIR and charge sheet by Noida police, has prompted the ED to seek Yadav's appearance for questioning on July 23. His recent foreign travel to the United Kingdom delayed an earlier scheduled appearance on July 8, leading to the summons.

According to senior ED officials cited by Hindustan Times, Rahul Yadav, also known as Fazilpuriya, a close associate and Haryana singer, was extensively questioned at the ED's Lucknow office on July 8. The questioning reportedly included inquiries about the inclusion of a snake in one of Fazilpuriya's popular songs. Previously, Elvish Yadav's associates Ishwar Yadav and Vinay Yadav had also been questioned in connection with the case.

The allegations against Elvish Yadav stem from his alleged involvement in a case involving the use and distribution of snake venom at a rave party in Noida, as reported by the Gautam Buddh Nagar police and lodged by an official from People for Animals (PFA). Alongside Yadav, five other individuals were named in the FIR. Subsequently, in May, the ED initiated proceedings under the PMLA, given the significant financial implications of the alleged racket.

For the unversed, Elvish Yadav was previously arrested by the Noida police on March 17 for suspected roles in supplying snake venom and organizing rave parties.

The charges against him included violations under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, the Wildlife Protection Act, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC). After spending nearly a week in a high-security facility, he was released on bail pending further legal proceedings.
