Mumbai: The body of missing HDFC Bank vice president Siddharth Sanghvi has been found, reported ANI on Monday. Police have arrested accused Sarfaraz Shaikh and further investigation is underway. Sanghvi went missing from his Kamala Mills office on September 5. His car was traced at Kopar Khairane area on September 6.
The 39-year-old banker had left his office in Kamala Mills area at 7.30 PM on the day. Subsequently, a missing person’s complaint was registered at NM Joshi Marg police station, and an investigation into the matter was initiated. Earlier in the day, media reports stated that blood stains were found on Sanghvi’s car. However, Senior Inspector Pandit Thorat told ANI the matter was being investigated as a missing person’s case, adding that details would be shared only once the investigation concluded. “The family members of the (missing) person have met us and requested not to share much about the case to media and they have some apprehensions about the details coming into news reports,” he added.
On Sunday, the Mumbai Police arrested a 20-year-old labourer who confessed to murdering Sanghvi after he left the office on Wednesday. The accused also told the police that after dumping Sanghvi’s body, he took his car to Navi Mumbai. The arrested accused, according to the reports, is one of the four men who was hired to kill the HDFC VP. The police also revealed that the plan was hatched by one of Sanghvi’s colleagues who was jealous of his promotion. The 39-year-old banker got many promotions since he joined the bank in 2007, leading to jealousy among his peers, said media reports.
