Elvish Yadav, arrested in the Snake Venom case, might have some relief after all. He was arrested under Wild Life Protection Act 1972 and the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985. Now, the NDPS act has been removed from the charges against him. This comes a day after Elvish tried to apply for bail but his plea wasn’t heard owing to the ongoing lawyers’ strike.

Noida Police removes NDPS act against Elvish

A report on Times Now confirms that Section 22 of the NDPS act, levied against Elvish has been removed. They have waived off the same calling it a clerical mistake.

Hinted previously

The news comes two days after Tihar jailor Deepak Sharma hinted that there’s some good news and people should believe in system. Whether he hinted to believe in the justice system or Elvish, who calls himself Systum, is still unclear. Deepak had asked people to not believe the rumours and have faith that things will turn out for better for Elvish. He had been going viral earlier in the day for a similar reason.

Why bail is tough for Elvish

Section 29 of the Wildlife Act deals with drug-related conspiracies like buying and selling. Bail is not easily granted in such cases. Reportedly, Elvish has admitted to smuggling snake venom in the said party in Noida. He had earlier confessed that Bollywood singer Fazilapuria was the supplier of the snakes.
