Last year,  based on a complaint filed by the People For Animals (PFA) organisation, the Noida Police raided a banquet hall located in Sector 51 and arrested five people. The PFA in its FIR named Elvish and accused him of organising rave parties in which they invite foreigners and arrange poisonous snakes. Noida Police had imposed 29 NDPS act on Elvis Yadav. 29 NDPS act is imposed when someone is involved in a drug-related conspiracy, like drug buying and selling. Bail is not easily given to the accused booked under this act.

For the unversed, nine venomous snakes were recovered during the raid. Under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, removing the venom glands of a snake is a punishable offense and the guilty can be jailed for seven years.
