Panchal had left his factory, located in Rajendra Nagar industrial area, around 1 pm on Monday for some work. His mobile phone was found switched off some minutes later, police said. His brother lodged a complaint, based on which police registered an FIR under Indian Penal Code section 364 (kidnapping), said Station House Officer (SHO), Sahibabad, Vishnu Kaushik.

Panchal's car was found in a field near Hajj House around 8 pm on Monday, police said. Prima facie it seems that Panchal was strangled to death, the SHO said, adding his mobile phone and wallet are missing.
