You can file criminal complaints for theft, criminal intimidation and criminal breach of trust against them. On your complaint police can search their premises to recover all your stolen articles. You are also free to file for divorce on the ground of cruelty and also seek maintenance for yourself and your child from your husband. Compensation for domestic violence suffered by you can also be sought.

File case in nearest police station where you live with your child a domestic violence case. The police will definitely act and arrest the culprits. If police dont act, file a domestic violence case in court. The court will order for arrest of culprits.

Hello,
1) You need to first of all file a DV petition under provisions of Protection of Women against Domestic Violence Act 2005. You can seek protection, maintenance for yourself and the child, residence, compensation for the tortures etc.

2)You can file police complaint besides destruction of the documents and the criminal intimidation.

3) All you need to do is to engage a lawyer to assist you who will guide you through the procedures to be followed and secure your rights.
