Kanta Prasad (80), the owner of the eatery, ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’, an eatery in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar, had shot to fame after the Youtuber shot and shared a video of him tearfully recounting the desperation of the months since the lockdown. The case was registered against the YouTuber following a complaint lodged by Prasad on October 31, nearly a month after the video went viral.

In his complaint to police, Prasad alleged that Wasan “intentionally and deliberately shared only his and his family/friends bank details and mobile numbers with the donors and collected huge amount of donation, without providing any information to the complainant”. He also challenged Wasan to disclose his bank details to prove his innocence.
