Mumbai: A manhunt has been launched for a top official of the Sales Tax department who allegedly assaulted his wife at their apartment in suburban Borivli, police said on Saturday.
Deepak Sankhe, Deputy Commissioner with Sales Tax department, attacked his wife Shobha (43) with a knife following a heated argument on Thursday night.
