YouTuber Elvish Yadav Arrested in Noida: 14 Days in Custody for Alleged Involvement in NDPS Act Violation

Noida Police apprehended YouTuber Elvish Yadav on Sunday, March 17, following extensive interrogation. Elvish’s name surfaced during the crackdown on a gang involved in the illegal trade of snake venom in Noida. Despite wearing a smile, Elvish was taken aback by his sudden arrest, unaware that his predicament was about to worsen. He was subsequently presented before the Surajpur court, which remanded him to 14 days of police custody.

A case was filed against Elvish Yadav in Noida, following a complaint by Gaurav Gupta, an animal welfare officer associated with BJP MP Maneka Gandhi’s organization, People for Animals. Acting on Gupta’s complaint, the police conducted a raid in the Sector-49 area of Noida, resulting in the arrest of five other individuals. It’s worth noting that Elvish Yadav faces charges under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, which mandates a minimum sentence of ten years and a minimum fine of Rs 1 lakh.

Meanwhile, the police recovered 20 ml of snake venom and 9 venomous snakes from the location. These snakes include five cobras, one python, two two-headed snakes, and one red snake.

Elvish’s involvement came to light during the interrogation, where it was disclosed that they were supplying snakes and venom to Elvish Yadav’s group. Subsequently, a case was registered against Elvish Yadav at Police Station Sector-49. Elvish has been interrogated multiple times by the Noida police.

Here are various methods used to induce intoxication through snakebite:

  1. Provoking the snake: One method involves grabbing the snake’s head and bringing it close to the body, allowing its tongue to touch the skin. Then, lightly tapping on the snake’s head prompts it to bite forcefully, releasing venom.
  2. Bite locations: Initially, the snake tends to bite the little finger or big toe, but as the intoxication progresses, it may also target the lips, tongue, and ear lobes.
  3. Duration of intoxication: Intoxicated individuals report experiencing a sharp bite lasting anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds. This is followed by sensations of intense pleasure, muscle pain, and drowsiness.
  4. Snake-in-a-bottle method: Some individuals keep a snake in a bottle and provoke it to bite their finger or tongue over the bottle’s mouth.
  5. Snakebite powder: Additionally, there is a powder made from snake venom, commonly known as snakebite powder. This powder, typically derived from cobra venom, is mixed with drinks and consumed. Narcotics officials state that the duration of intoxication can vary from a few hours to an entire day, depending on the dosage of poison ingested.

The use of snake venom for intoxication is not widely discussed, but there have been reported cases of its use. Experts suggest that it is sought after by individuals who are seeking alternatives to conventional drugs like morphine and cocaine.

Research published in the Journal of Psychological Medicine indicates that snake venom can have psychoactive effects when consumed in small doses, slowing down the human nervous system. Some studies even suggest that cobra venom can be as addictive as morphine.

When snake venom enters the body, it releases active metabolites into the bloodstream. These include serotonin, bradykinin, peptides, prostaglandins, and similar substances, which induce sleep and produce calming effects in the human body.
