The owner of the ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’, Kanta Prasad has filed a case against YouTuber Gaurav Wasan, who first uploaded his plight on social media. The 80-year-old Kanta Prasad has alleged that Wasan (Youtuber) has embezzled the funds that were raised to help his business, reported The Indian Express.
“I don’t get a lot of customers now; most people come here to take selfies… Earlier, I was earning over Rs 10,000 per day, now it’s Rs 3,000-Rs 5,000,” he told The Indian Express, adding that Wasan “deliberately shared his and his family’s bank details and collected a huge amount as a donation”.
The Delhi Police are yet to file an FIR in connection with the same. However, Wasan has denied all the allegations made by Kanta Prasad.
“We received the complaint yesterday at the Malviya Nagar Police Station and the matter is being probed,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Atul Kumar Thakur. “No FIR has been registered yet in the case.”
“When I shot the video, I didn’t know it would become this big. I didn’t want people to harass Baba (Prasad) so I shared my bank details…” Wasan said.
The truth is yet to come out but all we can say now is that if these allegations are proven true then the initiative ‘Vocal for Local’ is taking an ugly turn. Also, many other YouTubers have also made such videos and asked people to help them too. So we now wonder are they for real?
