The newly famous Baba Ka Dhaba in South Delhi’s Malviya Nagar is in news again, but this time for all the wrong reasons as the 80-year-old owner, Kanta Prasad of the eatery has filed a complaint with Delhi police alleging misappropriation of donations against Food Blogger and YouTuber Gaurav Wasan of Swad Official. Earlier, a video of Baba Ka Dhaba owner Kanta Prasad had gone viral on social media where he expressed anguish over his financial crisis as his Dhaba had to be shut down owing to the Covid-19 induced lockdown. After the video went viral, people from across the country started a campaign providing financial help and support to Prasad to restart his business.
Kanta Prasad told, “Gaurav has cheated me. He supported me a lot but transferred the donations received from people nationwide to his own bank account instead of transferring the money into my account.” Asked what will he do if the allegations against Gaurav prove to be false, Kanta Prasad said, “If proved wrong during the investigation, I will apologize.”
Meanwhile, Gaurav Wasan has denied the allegations saying, “There is absolutely no truth to the frivolous allegations leveled against me. An attempt is being made to malign my reputation. If these charges were true, I wouldn’t have come forward to provide proof of my bank statements correctly.” Wasan said, “All the money that came into my account has been transferred to Prasad. The police had asked me to reveal my bank statement which I have already given. When Baba comes to know the truth, then finally the outcome will be right”.
