Kanta Prasad, who came to the limelight overnight last year after a Youtuber made a video of him has allegedly attempted suicide.
He is currently admitted at Safdarjung Hospital.
Kanta Prasad had consumed sleeping pills along with alcohol and was rushed to the hospital in an unconscious state on Thursday night at around 11:30 PM.
DCP, South, Atul Thakur said, "Kanta Prasad, the 80-year-old owner of 'Baba Ka Dhaba' was admitted to Safdarjung Hospital last night. He was brought in an unconscious state after he consumed alcohol & sleeping pills. Statement of his son has been recorded for the same. Probe is going on,".
Kanta Prasad came into the limelight after a Youtuber named Gaurav Wassan made a video about them on YouTube. In that video, Kanta Prasad and his wife were seen struggling to make both ends meet. Gaurav requested his followers to help them financially and within no time the video went viral and the Baba ka Dhaba couple received financial assistance.
Later, a misunderstanding arose between Kanta Prasad and Gaurav, where Kanta Prasad accused Gaurav of allegedly defrauding him. However, it was only a few days ago that Prasad claimed that Wasan was not a thief, and that he did not cheat him.
