In an IANS news report, an anonymous woman claiming to be the wife of a Delhi-based businessman alleged that her husband had killed Satish Kaushik over a dispute over Rs 15 crore. The woman reportedly filed a complaint with the Delhi Police alleging that her husband had borrowed Rs 15 crore from Satish Kaushik a few years ago. At the party where Satish Kaushik was last spotted, her husband met Kaushik and the actor asked her husband to pay him 15 crores back. Afterwards, the businessman told the woman that he would have to kill Kaushik since he didn’t have the money to repay. The businessman said he lost his money during the pandemic.
