Twitter Divided After Baba Ka Dhaba Files Case Against YouTuber
Kanta Prasad of 'Baba Ka Dhaba' has filed a case against the YouTuber who posted his viral video.
On 2 November it was reported that the ‘Baba’ from ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’, who shot to fame after a viral video, had filed a case against YouTuber Gaurav Wasan. It was Wasan who first uploaded his plight on social media.
Eighty-year-old Kanta Prasad, who runs the dhaba, has alleged that Wasan misappropriated the funds that was raised to help his wife and him, reported The Indian Express.
Wasan, however, has denied all allegations against him. He told NDTV that on 8 October, he went to the bank to deposit cash on behalf of Kanta Prasad and was informed that the account had been sealed because a sum of Rs 20 lakh had already been deposited in the account. This is when he asked people to stop donating as Baba Ka Dhaba had received enough financial assistance.
This controversy has sparked quite a debate on social media, with some taking Gaurav Wasan's side.
Others feel unsure about trusting stories and people over the internet.
Many social media users are also sympathetic towards Kanta Prasad's plight.
The police is currently investigating into the matter.
