Yes you can file for divorce against on the ground of cruelty. Staying away from the matrimonial house for as long as 3 months amounts to cruelty upon the husband. You can thus file for divorce against her. 

Alternatively you can also file a case for resumption of conjugal duties against her and the court would order her to return to her matrimonial home.
