Five days after the HDFC Bank Vice President Siddharth Kiran Sanghvi went missing, Mumbai Police recovered his body from a hilly area near the Haji Malang shrine in Thane district on Monday, and have arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the murder. Navi Mumbai Police, who are conducting a parallel investigation, got the first breakthrough Sunday morning after they picked up Sarfaraz Shaikh from CBD Belapur. Shaikh lives in Koperkhairaine and drives an app-based taxi.
Sanghvi has been missing from his office premises in Kamala Mills under mysterious circumstances since Wednesday. According to police, Sanghvi lived in Malabar Hill with his wife and four-year-old son. Police had recovered his abandoned car with blood stains on the seat next day near Sector 11 in Navi Mumbai. Police said that they suspect professional rivalry to have been the reason for Sanghvi’s murder. The mastermind of the crime is yet to be identified.
