Recently, Kanta Prasad, the owner of the famous Baba Ka Dhaba, has alleged that he has been constantly receiving death threats, reports India Today. The 80-year-old mentioned that he is scared to step out of his house. He even alleged that a few miscreants threatened to burn down his eatery.
Kanta Prasad has now filed a police complaint at the Malviya Nagar Police Station. In his complaint, the elderly man alleged that many people are “jealous” of him due to this sudden fame. Prasad said that even though he doesn’t have any past rivalry, he has received many threats on the phone in the last few days.
In November, a person, who identified himself as the brother of Gaurav (Wasan), came to me & threatened to hit me. On December 8, another person called me & threatened to set my eatery on fire.
