The online feud between Yadav and Thakur began with posts shared by Thakur concerning Yadav’s interactions with Munawar Faruqui, another Bigg Boss winner. Elvish Yadav and Munawar Faruqui participated in the opening match of the Indian Street Premier League, alongside notable figures such as Sachin Tendulkar and Akshay Kumar. Yadav’s association with Faruqui drew criticism from his followers, particularly due to Faruqui’s past legal issues related to remarks about Hindu deities.

Thakur further exacerbated tensions by labelling Yadav as a “hypocrite” in one of his posts. Yadav responded by reminding Thakur of his residence in Delhi, indicating a verbal exchange that preceded the physical altercation.

The Gurugram Police also confirmed that an FIR has been registered against Elvish Yadav for attacking YouTuber Sagar Thakur in Gurugram last night. The FIR against Yadav has been filed at Sector 53, Gurugram under Sections 147, 149, 323, and 506 of the IPC, it added..
