It was recently that a heart-wrenching video of the South Delhi food stall named ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ run by an elderly couple had gone viral on social media.
The power of social media had catapulted the eatery into the limelight, garnering attention from citizens and celebrities alike. Donations poured in from all over the world for ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ thanks to the video shot by YouTuber Gaurav Wasan.
However, now Kanta Prasad, the owner of the Dhaba, has registered a police complaint against Wasan for alleged misappropriation of funds. In the complaint, the elderly couple reportedly mentioned that Wasan is not showing financial details of the money he received.
“We received the complaint yesterday at the Malviya Nagar Police Station and the matter is being probed. No FIR has been registered yet in the case,” Atul Kumar Thakur, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Delhi), said.
Actor R.Madhavan is totally disappointed with the news. He took to his Twitter account and pointed out that such acts actually serve as a reason for people to not come out to do good. He wrote,
“Elderly owner of Baba ka Dhaba duped in Delhi? Now this is the kind of thing that gives ppl a reason not to do good. Unacceptable. Now if this fraud couple is caught and punished ..FAITH will be restored @DelhiPolice full faith in you.”
