Elvish Yadav on slap gate incident

A verified user on X (formerly Twitter) posted a brief audio clip allegedly featuring Elvish justifying his actions and describing the incident.

The caption read, ''Truth be told, disrespect has consequences, and @ElvishYadav isn't one to tolerate it lightly. A slap may seem harsh, but so is insulting someone's family. Respect is a two-way street, and sometimes a strong reaction is necessary to remind others of that. So, before casting judgment, consider the context and remember that actions have consequences.''

Elvish released an audio statement and claimed that he slapped the man because he hurdled abuses at him, "Bhai, dekho, matter ye hai, naa mujhe shauk hai ladai karne ka, naa mere ko haath uthane ka shauk hai. Main apne kaam se kaam rakhta hoon. Main chalta hoon normal. Aur jo photo khichwane ko kehta hai, hum kichwate hai aaram se photo. Par, jo koi piche se comment pass karta hai, usko nahi bakshte (I am not interested in fighting nor slapping someone. I click photos with whoever asks but if you make a personal remark, I don't spare them either.. I dint regret my behvaior.."

He added, "As you can see, there were police and commandos with us. It is not that we've done anything wrong. This was personal. He took a personal dig at me, I went and slapped him. I don't have any regrets. Aisa hi hoon main (I am like this only). He hurled abuses and I reacted in my style."
