Baba Ka Dhaba Owner Files FIR Against Youtuber Who Made Him Famous! What Went Wrong?
The viral ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ case from Malviya Nagar, Delhi has now caught on a controversy, most of which many of you must be aware of.
An FIR has been registered against the Delhi-based YouTuber Gaurav Wasan, the same YouTube blogger, who was behind uploading Baba’s video over the internet (in the first place).
The FIR has been filed by Baba himself, Kanta Prasad, who has alleged the Youtuber for duping the fat amount that people all over the country donated for him (Prasad).
Baba Files an FIR Against Wasan
About a month ago, YouTube blogger Gaurav Wasan posted a video of a teary eyed Kanta Prasad (80) and his wife, sharing their hardships due to reduced customers in the lockdown.
The video went viral overnight, reaching 9 million+ views on Instagram, with ‘#BabakaDhaba’ being the most trending hashtag on Twitter.
Now, Kanta Prasad has filed an FIR against the same YouTuber, on October 31, for allegedly cheating him of his donations.
DCP Atul Kumar Thakur says, “As per the complainant, Wasan deliberately shared bank details and mobile number of only his and his family members in the video for donations. A preliminary enquiry was done, after which an FIR under section 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of IPC has been registered.”
YouTuber Asked to Disclose Complete Account Statement
In a press conference held by Prasad yesterday (Friday), accompanied by his lawyer Prem Joshi and blogger Tushant, he (Prasad) alleged that Wasan did not return a major amount of the donation.
Joshi commented that Wasan gave Prasad a cheque of Rs 2,33,000 after he was famously trolled for not returning Baba’s money, on October 26.
Tushant has alleged Wasan to have shared his account statements from October 7 to October 10 and has demanded the same until October 26.
Wasan Claims to Have Submitted Acc Statements Until Nov 2
YouTuber Gaurav Wasan has defended himself by submitting three receipts of transactions dated October 27, two cheques of Rs 1,00,000 and Rs 2,33,000 and a receipt of bank payment of Rs 45,000.
He adds, “I’ve submitted bank account statements till November 2 to police. I haven’t cheated anyone. Baba should check his account.”
