The YouTuber shared yet another vidoe, about an hour ago, travelling around and also talking about experiences of getting on the wheels of his new Mercedes car. The YouTuber talks about sickness due to changing weather but nowhere he looks ‘frail or incompetent’ enough to face police probe.
This raised the hackles of many netizens as the YouTuber was expected at police station for questioning in the snake venom case. But, inspite of going there & cooperating in police probe, the Bigg Boss winner was seen having a gala time. Many questioned that he found time for recording vlogs but not for police probe.
Elvish named singer Fazilpuria
The YouTuber has been questioned twice in the snake venom case. In an earlier interrogation, Elvish Yadav told Noida police that the snakes spotted in his music video were arranged by a Bollywood singer Fazilpuria.
Noida police have questioned the 26-year-old social media star, twice so far. During previous quizzing, he appeared before the cops with a battery of lawyers.
