Nothing can be done in the given facts on the part of the husband. He cannot claim the bank account of his wife as of himself. Who so ever is recorded as the account-holder, he is the person to operate it and the money lying therein also belongs to him so bettr to think some other way.

What is the purpose of seeking bank account of wife ? When you are aware she has sufficient means to maintain herself, which you (or your lawyer) must ask in cross-examination.
What is the opinion and advise of your lawyer if you are a party ? Otherwise, it is advisable to consult a local senior for appreciation of facts / documents and guidance .

During the course of evidence, original ITR of wife can also be summoned in Court wherein signature upon ITR might be of your wife and in that event, she cannot refuse having no knowledge of submitted ITR and similarly bank account statement can also be called i the court at that stage and can be put before her and she may be got cross-examined accordingly. Interim order can also be got challenged before upper court.
