Speaking to ANI, Saanvi Malu said, "I have got a complaint registered in connection with Satish Ji's death. He had come to my husband's farmhouse for a party, where his health deteriorated. Some objectionable medicines have also been found from the farmhouse. Satish Ji and my husband had business connections as well.

In August 2022, an argument broke out between Satish Ji and my husband, where Satish ji demanded Rs 15 crores that he had earlier given to him. But, my husband said that he will give the money in India." She further alleged, "When I later asked from him about the money, my husband said that he borrowed the money from Satish ji, but the money went for loss during the Covid period. My husband was not in the mood to return the money, he even said that he will use blue pills and Russian girls to do away with Satish Kaushik.

That's why I have brought this angle to the police for fair investigation." On being asked about her earlier complaints against Vikas Malu, she alleged that Vikas as well as his son "raped" her after which she left his house. "I have earlier registered a complaint against Vikas Malu. Firstly, Vikas raped me, and then forcefully got married to me. After marriage, even his son started raping me. This was completely unbearable for me, and I left his house in October 2022," she said.

The minor son of Vikas Malu's first wife had also filed an FIR against Vikas Malu's second wife Saanvi under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act.

The video is also with the police, the police said. Saanvi Malu further alleged that her husband has connections to the underworld including the likes of Dawood Ibrahim.

"I have images of several people who used to visit our house regularly. Vikas himself told me that Anas, who used to come to our house, is Dawood Ibrahim's son. Mustafa, another person who regularly came to our house, is also Dawood Ibrahim's right-hand man," she added. After his wife levelled accusations of his involvement in the death of veteran actor Satish Kaushik, the farmhouse owner Vikas Malu alleged that his name is being used in "wrong light".

Speaking to ANI, Vikas Malu said, "If she (Saanvi Malu) wants to do some hype in front of media, I can do nothing about it. Police and government are there and if I am wrong then I am ready to face anything. Her allegations are wrong or else she should show proof. I had only family relations with Satish Kaushik, I was not involved with him in any business.

And those who're making these claims must prove it." Vikas Malu uploaded the video of the party held at his farmhouse on the day of Holi on Instagram and wrote, "Satish Ji has been my family for the past 30 years and it did not take minutes for the world to use my name in the wrong light."

"I cannot fathom the tragedy that happened after our beautiful celebration together," he added.
