A driver work­ing for a ve­hi­cle show­room at Dahisar was kid­napped and robbed of a car by two uniden­ti­fied men on Thurs­day.

A case has been filed with the Shildaighar po­lice sta­tion. No ar­rests have been made yet.

The in­ci­dent took place on Thurs­day, when Ar­baz Ab­dul Shaikh, 20, was go­ing to de­liver Mahin­dra XUV from Dahisar to Ghatkopar.

A Bhoir, in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, said, “When Shaikh was about to leave, two un­known ac­cused hit the bon­net with their hands. Shaikh got down to check the dam­age caused to the ve­hi­cle.”

The duo then threat­ened Shaikh at knife­point, pushed him into the car and asked him to head to­wards the Mum­bra by­pass road near Talasari. Shaikh was asked to get off in the mid­dle of the road and the duo fled with the ve­hi­cle and the driver’s mo­bile phone.

“Shaikh in­formed his se­nior of­fi­cer, who then lodged a com­plaint.

The col­lec­tive worth of the items that have been robbed is Rs20 lakh.

We will get their sketches made based on the de­scrip­tion provided by Shaikh. We are try­ing to trace the ve­hi­cle. We will also check if his­tory- sheeters were in­volved in it,” said Bhoir.

The un­known ac­cused have been charged un­der sec­tions 363 ( pun­ish­ment for kid­nap­ping), 392 (pun­ish­ment for rob­bery), 504 (in­ten­tional in­sult with in­tent to pro­voke breach of peace) of 34 of the In­dian Pe­nal Code ( IPC).
