1. He can be prosecuted for seeking dowry, physical abuse, causing miscarriage to be done and intimidating you. 

2. You may file a case for domestic violence in the court as the abuse suffered by you within the realm of your matrimonial home falls within the ambit of domestic violence. You may seek protection, residence and maintenance from your husband.
