YouTuber Elvish Yadav Summoned by ED in Money Laundering Probe Linked to Noida Rave Party

Lucknow: YouTuber and Bigg Boss OTT2 winner Elvish Yadav has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case related to the snake-venom-at-rave incident.

The ED, which registered a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in May after considering a First Information Report (FIR) and charge sheet, has asked Yadav to appear in Lucknow on July 23.

Initially scheduled to appear earlier this week, Yadav requested a postponement due to prior overseas commitments and professional obligations, ED sources revealed. The investigation focuses on allegations of illicit funds being used for organising raves and parties.

The ED’s action follows its questioning of singer Rahul Yadav alias Rahul Fazilpuriya, reportedly associated with Elvish Yadav, earlier this week in connection with the snake-venom-at-rave case. The singer may be summoned again for further questioning.

Earlier, Elvish Yadav was arrested by Noida Police on March 17 for allegedly supplying snake venom at a suspected rave party. He was later granted bail after a brief judicial custody. In November, the Noida Police arrested five snake charmers linked to the case, all of whom were subsequently released on bail by a local court.

In April, the Noida Police filed a comprehensive chargesheet of over 1,200 pages, detailing charges including snake trafficking, use of psychotropic substances and organising rave parties.
