You can put various charges against him. There is a special legislation The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 dedicated to protect women from various types of abuse. As per S. 3 of the Act, 'verbal and emotional abuse' includes insults, ridicule, humiliation and name calling. Prohibition or restriction to continued access to the shared household is included within the meaning of 'economic abuse'. You can file a complaint against him under this section. Moreover you can also charge him under section 498A IPC which deals with domestic violence too and inflicts criminal liability.
