The car of a 39-year-old bank executive, missing since Wednesday, was found abandoned in adjoining Navi Mumbai with blood stains on its rear seat, said police Saturday.
Siddharth Sanghavi, a resident of upscale Malabar Hill area in South Mumbai who works with a leading private bank in Kamala Mills compound, is untraceable since Wednesday evening, a police official said.
As he did not return home till late night, his family member lodged a missing complaint with the police.
“The N M Joshi police has registered a missing complaint in the case… our team is trying to locate the vice-president of HDFC Bank,” Additional Commissioner of Police Ravindra Shisve (Central Region) said as told to Indian Express.
Sanghavi's car, which he used to travel to his office, was found abandoned near a high rise building at Koparkhairane in Navi Mumbai, police said.
Blood stains and a knife were found on the rear seat of the car, police said.
The Mumbai police with the help of their Navi Mumbai counterparts are investigating the case, the official said.
Sanghvi’s phone was switched off at Kamala Mills and CCTV footage shows him exiting the office, reported by Hindustan Times.
CCTV footages of relevant sports in the two cities and Sanghavi's phone call records are being analysed for clues, he said, adding the police were exploring all angles.
"Our first priority is to locate the missing person," the official added.
