About Elvish Yadav’s Snake Venom Case

The case centers on the alleged use of snake venom as a recreational substance at parties in Noida last year. Mr. Yadav is accused of organizing the provision of snake venom at these events and involving snakes in his video productions.

The ‘People for Animals’ NGO, founded by Maneka Gandhi, lodged a complaint against Yadav and five others for purportedly supplying snake venom at a gathering in Noida. They initiated an undercover operation during which they requested Yadav to arrange a rave party and acquire cobra venom. A subsequent forensic examination confirmed the presence of cobra and krait venom in the samples collected during the raid.

In November of 2023, law enforcement uncovered a snake smuggling operation during a raid on a banquet hall in Noida’s Sector 51. Five individuals, including four snake charmers, were apprehended for allegedly distributing snake venom. Additionally, nine snakes, including cobras and other poisonous species, were seized from them.

What Is Snake Venom Addiction?

Snake venom addiction is an atypical type of substance misuse where individuals purposefully subject themselves to snake venom for its intoxicating effects. The venom contains neurotoxins that can cause symptoms resembling intoxication. This addiction, also termed ophidism, poses severe risks to life and health and is not a prevalent practice in India.

The outcomes of snake venom exposure can be uncertain and potentially fatal, with effects that may persist for several days. Over time, it could lead to the development of both physical and psychological dependencies in individuals.
