Elvish Yadav, who has recently made headlines for his social media antics, now finds himself in a legal predicament as a case has been registered against him and six others in Noida’s Sector 49 police station.
The case against Elvish Yadav and his associates pertains to their alleged involvement in providing snake poison to revelers during rave parties.
