In the new restaurant, Baba has also installed a CCTV camera. Recently, Baba said that his life is in danger and that he has been receiving death threats.

The new restaurant of ‘Baba ka Dhaba’ also has a separate counter, at which Kanta Prasad is seated. Baba said that he will see to the accounts himself.

After the video of his plight went viral, Prasad had come out and accused the YouTuber of cheating him. “Gaurav’s biggest mistake was to make that video,” Prasad had said in another video that was widely shared on the Internet.
Prasad aka ‘Baba’ had also filed a case against Wasan for cheating. The Delhi Police registered a case against the YouTuber for allegedly misappropriating funds received as a donation for the owner of ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’.
