Lucknow, July 10

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned YouTuber Siddharth Yadav alias Elvish Yadav on July 23 for questioning in a money laundering case linked to the suspected use of snake venom as a recreational drug in parties hosted by him, official sources said on Wednesday.

The central agency had registered the case in May and pressed charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognisance of an FIR and a charge sheet filed against Elvish Yadav and linked persons by police in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddh Nagar (Noida) district.

The sources said Elvish Yadav was initially asked to appear this week before the ED at its Lucknow office but he sought deferment of the summons owing to his scheduled foreign travel and professional commitments.

He has now been asked to depose before the investigating officer of the ED on July 23, they said.

Rahul Yadav alias Rahul Fazilpuriya, a singer from Haryana allegedly linked to Elvish Yadav, was questioned by the ED this week in the said case, they said. He may be called again.

Alleged generation of proceeds of crime and the use of illicit funds for organising rave or recreational parties is under the ED’s scanner.
