Hi Chetan
From Release 2019b you can disengage joints. So you can "glue" together two solid with a Weld Joint, and then during simulation you can disengage it using a signal switching from 0 to -1, and the joint becomes a 6 DoF joints. This would mimick "slicing" a solid in two, with the two solids disengaging. I'm attaching one example (for 2020a release).
hope this helps

Thanks for answering. Tried the model you have provided. It worked as expected.
From this what I observed, we can engage/disengage only one using step signal which is valid.
