HDFC Bank Vice-President is missing under mysterious circumstances. His car was found abandoned with blood stains on the seat.

Siddharth Kiran Sanghvi hadn't returned home after he left his Kamala Mills office on Wednesday, September 5. His car was found abandoned the next day in Navi Mumbai on Thursday evening.

"He left for work at his usual time... and we have learnt that he left office around 7.30 pm. We could see him walking out of his branch but we could not locate his car while leaving the Kamala Mill premises on any CCTV camera," said a police officer to Indian Express.

"On Wednesday, September 5, Siddharth Sanghavi (38), a resident of Malabar Hills, left office around 8 pm, but did not reach home. His family contacted us to know his whereabouts. Around 10 pm, we along with his family went to N M Joshi Marg police station and filed a missing person's complaint," an official from HDFC Bank said. "There was nobody in the car but some blood stains in the back seat," a police officer told The Hindu.

The police went on to say that Sanghvi's phone was switched off before he left the HDFC office in  Kamala mills premises.

Sanghvi's car was found near Sector 11 in Airoli.

"We had sent wireless messages to all police stations across Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Thane. Accordingly, the Airoli police informed us after they found Sanghvi's Maruti Ignis car," said the officer.

"The Mumbai Police have taken the car and they are investigating," Sudhakar Pathare, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone I, said.

The police suspect that it could be an abduction and have filed a missing persons report at N M Joshi Marg police.
