Owner of the famous Baba Ka Dhaba in South Delhi’s Malviya Nagar area, Kanta Prasad (80) was admitted to Safdarjung Hospital on Thursday night following a suicide bid, police said.
The cops added that they received a PCR call that a man, who attempted suicide, has arrived at the hospital. “Police rushed to the spot and found that he is Kanta Prasad. He is currently undergoing treatment. His wife informed the police that he depressed for the last few days,” a senior police officer informed.
His wife has also said that Prasad had to close the restaurant he opened in December last year and was back to his old roadside stall as the cost of running the new establishment was around Rs 1 lakh while his income was only about Rs 30,000.
Last year, Prasad had lodged an FIR of cheating against YouTuber Gaurav Wasan for allegedly misappropriating money that was raised to help him and his wife.
Gaurav Wasan had shot the widely shared video of the elderly man and his wife on October 7 last year, which showed the couple talking about lack of customers at the eatery in Malviya Nagar, following which several people donated money.
