Khattar had shared the stage with Elvish during his fan meet, where the Haryana CM congratulated the YouTuber for his victory in Bigg Boss OTT-season 2. Meanwhile, the YouTuber has denied his involvement in the supply of snake venom at the rave party.
Elvish, in a personalized YouTube video on Saturday, denied charges against himself, saying that he is ready to surrender if found to be involved in the matter. “When I woke up, I saw the FIR in which it was written that Maneka Gandhi’s NGO (People for Animals) had filed this case. That lady was saying that I roam around with snakes around my neck. All that was for the shooting of a song and nothing else. I will not spoil my name and my family’s name by indulging in all these illegal activities. If I have even one percent involvement in this case, I will surrender myself, whether the punishment is 10 years or 100 years. Everyone knows that my level has not fallen so low that I will do this kind of work,” Elvish said.
