On October 10, 2015, Patel had stolen Sahil Khan’s Mercedes from Charkop after paying a token amount of Rs 50,000 to the actor’s sister. Patel told Khan that he will be directly transferring the rest of the amount to his bank account, however, he later approached the actor for a second test drive and fled with the car. A case of theft was later lodged with the Charkop police.
In December, the accused’s lawyer surrendered the car at the police station. The actor had, however, complained that the stereo system and high-end speakers were missing from the car.
