1. You have involve local police to prevent the owner from threatening your father.
2. File a suit for injunction.

Dear Sir / Madam,
Your first line of action is to lodge an FIR in the local Police station. Work on a win-win situation with the landlord of your premises. If your father is doing well in the automobile business and is presently paying around 10% to 15% of his net earnings by way of lease charges to the landlord, he should increase the monthly / annual lease charges that he pays to the landlord. A benchmark of parting with 20% to 25% of the net profits should be mutually agreed to by your father with the landlord, to amicably resolve and settle the issue. I say this since you say that the landlord's offer to your father to purchase the premises outright is too exorbitant and way above prevailing market prices.
What is the rent of the shop? If it is less then 3500/- then you are covered under Delhi Rent Control Act and the landlord can not evict you from your possession. Secondly you should file criminal complaint in the local police station against the land lord that he threatening you for vacating the shop. Then you should file a case of injunction against the landlord so that he may not dispossess you from your possession without due process of law.
