Noida: A sub-inspector of Noida Police, who is investigating the case of illegal sale of snake venom against Bigg Boss OTT-2 winner and famous YouTuber Elvish Yadav, has been transferred. Officials said that Sub-Inspector Sandeep Chaudhary, in-charge of Sector-49 police station of Noida, has been transferred to Police Lines.
A police spokesperson said on Sunday night that the station in-charge of Noida Sector-49 has been transferred to the reserve police line due to his inability to effectively control crime under the police station area.

FIR registered under the provisions.
According to the police, on November 3, five accused were arrested and nine snakes including five cobras were rescued from them and 20 ml of suspected snake venom was also recovered. Police said they are investigating Yadav’s role in the entire episode. Yadav was not found at the spot on November 3. The YouTuber denied all the allegations against him and promised to cooperate with the police investigation. This case was registered on the complaint of an official of animal rights group PFA (People for Animals).
PFA president and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Maneka Gandhi alleged the involvement of Elvish Yadav in illegally selling snake venom and demanded his immediate arrest. On November 4, in Kota, Rajasthan, police stopped Yadav (26) for questioning when he was traveling in a car with his friends.
