Delhi Police registered a case of cheating against YouTuber Gaurav Wasan on the basis of a complaint by Kanta Prasad, the owner of eatery ‘Baba ka Dhaba,’ who had recently become viral on social media. 



Prasad claimed that Wasan had allegedly misappropriated the funds that he had received as donation for Prasads dhaba from people across social media.



Wasan, who claimed that he would go to court against all those trying to ?defame? him, said he would take legal action against a group of YouTubers, who he said had manipulated Prasad into filing the police complaint.



A month ago, Wasan had shot a video of Prasad and his wife facing extreme financial crisis due to lack of customers during the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19. Soon, the owner became viral on social media and hundreds of customers thronged his eatery as a gesture of support.



The story, that sighted the power of social media and humanity, took a malicious turn when Prasad alleged that Wasan had committed fraud against them by misappropriating money raised by donators to help him.



According to Delhi Police, a complaint from Prasad was received at Malviya Nagar Police Station on October 10 regarding cheating and fraud against the YouTuber. A preliminary inquiry was initiated, following which a cognisable offence was registered and a probe is now underway.



The complainant alleged that he is having a stall in the name of Baba Ka Dhaba opposite Hanuman Mandir Malviya Nagar Market, New Delhi, and in October 2020, Gaurav Wasan approached him and shot a video with him to help/promote his business, Delhi Police told ANI.



Atul Kumar Thakur, DCP (South) informed, 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 the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered, reported The Indian Express.



Prasad held a press conference on Friday alleging that he had so far not received a major part of the donations from his well-wishers. I am not saying Wasan is a criminal but I want to know the truth. I suspect he has my money, which he should return, said Prasad.



His lawyer Prem Joshi and a blogger Tushant, who accompanied Prasad in the press conference, blamed Wasan for giving out funds only after he received backlash on social media. Gaurav has disclosed his account statement from October 7 to 10. We want to see it till October 26, added Tushant.



Wasan submitted 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.



I’ve submitted bank account statements till November 2 to police. I haven’t cheated anyone. Baba should check his account, said Wasan.



Prasad said that he has not been able access his bank statement.
