YouTuber Elvish Yadav has denied alleged involvement in the supply of snake venom at a rave party in Noida. This came after an FIR was filed against six people including the YouTuber for supplying the venom.
Elvish Yadav, in a video posted on Instagram, claimed that all allegations against him are false.
"I woke up and heard the news about my alleged arrest in the media. All these allegations against me are fake and without truth. They are not even 1 per cent true. I am willing to cooperate with UP Police. I request the UP Government and the UP CM Yogi Adityanath that even if there is a 0.1 per cent involvement in this then I am willing to take full responsibility. I request the media to not spread any misinformation till then, I have nothing to do with this."
