However, if paramour has a proof which can establish that he was unaware of the marital status of this woman then he would escape the clutches of law.

section 497 provides .-- Whoever has sexual intercourse with a person who is and whom he knows or has reason to believe to be the wife of another man, without the consent or connivance of that man, such sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape, is guilty of the offence of adultery, and shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend 

in the present case your wife lover believed that your wife was not married and had supressed said fact of marriage . hence he would not be guilty of offence of adultery . you cannot punish your wife for said offence as lady is laways believed to be victim . 

best option is to file for divorce on grounds of adultery

Who would like to have a wife who is not trustworthy?  As suggested by my learned friends go for divorce by mutual consent and its very difficult to prove adultery against your wife because such things happen within four walls secretly and only circumstantial evidence should help you.
