Delhi Police have recovered some suspicious medicines from the farmhouse where Bollywood actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik died due to a heart attack. The Delhi Police has made a list of guests who were present at the farmhouse located at Bijwasan in Southwest Delhi.

A team of Delhi police officers on Friday visited the farmhouse – owned by his businessman friend and collected the objectionable medicines. A pack of medicines like Digene and regular diabetes pills has also been recovered from the room where Kaushik was staying on Wednesday night.

Kaushik had come from Mumbai to Delhi for a Holi party at the farmhouse of his businessman friend. Police said his businessman friend is facing a case of rape filed by his wife three years ago and the matter is in court.

Police said Kaushik would often visit this farmhouse. He had come to celebrate Holi with his friends. He was accompanied by his manager.

Over a dozen of guests were invited to the party. The Delhi Police has made a list of the guests including the owner of the farmhouse. The Police will soon start their questioning as well.

Kaushik died on Wednesday after he complained of chest pain in the night. He was rushed to Fortis Hospital in Gurugram where he was declared brought dead.

Delhi Police took his body back to Delhi and conducted a post-mortem examination on him at DDU Hospital. A panel of doctors conducted the post-mortem examination and also preserved his viscera to ascertain the actual cause of death and find out whether any substance was present in his body.

The police have also not ruled out the possibility of a drug overdose during the party that might have caused his death. Further investigations are on.

His manager Santosh Rai had said that he did not drink and went to sleep at 9.30 pm on Wednesday. “He was all well and was not having any problem before going to sleep,” he added.

“At about 10.30 – 11 pm, he called me and told me that he experienced pain in the chest and was having problems in breathing. We rushed him to Fortis Hospital where he was declared dead,” said Rai.
