There is no particular section under you can ask for her details of treatment without initiating a divorce procedure. As experts earlier suggested take her to another doctor and get the diagnosis report. In case you are filing a divorce for nullity on grounds of mental illness this direction can be obtained from the Court. it is not easy to put up a case of mental insanity without medical reports or treatment papers. As you know that you are supposed to prove your allegation and produce sufficient proof for that.
go to another hospital because getting done through court also not that easy

Hospital cannot divulge details of your wife's ailment, if any, without her prior permission. You may take her to another hospital if you desire but no hospital can part with the details of a patient's ailment and the treatment given to her unless he authorizes it to do so. There is no right to know about spouse's medical condition under Hindu Marriage Act.
