Khan’s wife Ayesha had allegedly hired three men to castrate him, for which she took the help of her niece Nandini and Nandini's husband Pawan Vishwakarma. However, Pawan is said to have told the men to kill Khan instead.

Ayesha had alleged that her husband had sexually exploited several women by promising them jobs as nurses, India Today reported. She is also said to have claimed that he had raped her niece when she was a minor.
