In a shocking twist in Satish Kaushik’s death, a woman has made shocking claims accusing her former husband of murdering the veteran actor. The woman in question is the second wife of the farmhouse owner Vikas Malu, who had hosted the Holi party on the day Kaushik died.
The estranged wife of Malu has reportedly claimed that both Kaushik and her ex-husband had business relationship, adding that her ex-husband had borrowed Rs. 15 crores from the veteran actor.
“I’m reading in newspapers that Satish Kaushik ji was at Vikas Malu’s farmhouse to celebrate Holi and the police have recovered some drugs from the farmhouse. He suffered a heart attack after that (Holi celebrations),” Malu’s estranged wife was quoted by The New Indian website as saying.
She alleged that there was a heated argument in Dubai between Kaushik and Malu over the money owed by the latter. “When I asked my husband about the reason for the argument, he (Malu) said that he had borrowed some money from Kaushik for investment purposes,” she added.
