In October this year, a heartbreaking video of an elderly couple who runs ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ in Delhi went viral on social media. It was posted by YouTuber Gaurav Wasan, and the video, which showed the 80-year-old Kanta Prasad in tears due to lack of customers, gave Baba Ka Dhaba overnight fame. Now, Baba ka Dhaba owner Kanta Prasad has alleged that he has been constantly receiving death threats, and that he is scared to step out of his house.
According to a report in India Today, Kanta Prasad alleged that some miscreants threatened to burn down his Dhaba. Prasad has now filed a complaint at the Malviya Nagar Police Station. He alleged that after his sudden fame, many people are ‘jealous’ of him. He also said that while he doesn’t have any past rivalry, he has received many threats on the phone, and near the Dhaba, in the last few days. The report in India Today states that while an FIR hasn’t been registered on the complaint yet, the police have started an investigation.
Kanta Prasad’s lawyer Prem Joshi said that they suspect YouTuber Gaurav Wasan’s role, however, they do not have any proof of this. The YouTuber however refuted the accusation, and said someone is misleading Kanta Prasad. He also said that the police would now reveal the truth behind this.
In November, Kanta Prasad had filed a complaint against YouTuber Gaurav Wasan at the Malviya Nagar Police Station and accused him of not sharing financial details of donations he received. In his complaint, Kanta Prasad claimed that Gaurav, who shot the video and asked for donations, had misappropriated the money. Read more about it here.
