Why is के necessary? Would राज साथ आमिर नहीं रहता है be wrong? Or क साथ just a structure?

It's just a structure. This is how I (non mother tongue) have come to think of it:

आमिर के सामने (Aamir's front)

आमिर के पीछे (Aamir's behind)

आमिर के साथ (Aamir's 'entourage/accompaniment/associations')

So the given sentence is like "Raj, (as) Aamir's accompaniment, doesn't live."

By the way, साथ alone can mean together (sometimes you see it like साथ-साथ, or एक साथ). So they go together is वे एक साथ जाते हैं।
