Although theoretically well-motivated as a minimal consistent dark matter (DM) model, the inert doublet model (IDM) fell short in explaining the existence of DM in the intermediate mass region (100–500 GeV). We try to address this problem by introducing an additional vector dark matter. We show that the relic density of inert dark matter candidate can be enhanced significantly with new interactions in the intermediate mass region 100–500 GeV in the multicomponent dark matter model when compared with the usual single component inert doublet model. We also show that we can get a reasonable excess in the [see pdf] distribution if we do not apply a very hard [see pdf] cut on it as is customary in any dark matter search at the LHC.
