Involved in a murder case
In March 2023, Vikas Malu was alleged by his wife, Saanvi Malu, for plotting the murder of the Bollywood actor Satish Kaushik. In an interview, Saanvi Malu said that Vikas Malu and Satish Kaushik had an argument on 23 August 2022, in Dubai, over an amount of Rs 15 crore, which Malu borrowed from Satish Kaushik for investing in his business. She said that Vikas Malu didn’t want to return Satish’s money as he lost it in the COVID-19 pandemic and said her that he will kill him by giving him blue pills. According to some sources, after the demise of the actor, it was found that some objectional medicines were recovered from Malu’s farmhouse, where a party for the Holi celebration was held in which Satish Kaushik was also present. However, Vikas Malu refused the allegations and claimed that he had only family relations with Satish Kaushik and was not involved in any kind of business deals with him. In an interview, he talked about it and said,
Police and government are there and if I’m wrong then I’m 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.”
Later, Satish Kaushik’s wife, Shashi Kaushik responded to the allegations made by Saanvi Malu and called them baseless. In an interview, she said that her husband, Satish Kaushik, was good friends with Vikas Malu. She further revealed that according to the post-mortem reports, the actor had 98% coronary artery blockage and there were no drugs found in his samples.
