Dont think tit for tat if she files 498A you will be arrested there is no deadly case that you can file on her. Think about your protection first.

Sanity,simplicity,honesty, being ready for worst and doing ur best r golden rules for life.
1. Why did u let ur marriage deteiriorate to this extent?
2. Why dont u settle issues amicably before 498a. If she was wrong then do u have evidence? If u r wrong then pay the blood money ( amt to settle issue amicably so that person affected / victim gets compansation and does not take revenge ) .
3. Do u think any criminal should be let loose??? Asking dowery, mental cruelty, taunting, abusing her relatives, extra marital relations, hiding vital facts/ sickness, disabilities are all crimes and should be dealy with accordingly or person not doing so be also punished for encouraging wrong doers and letting loose such people who can committ crime again .

you cannot file any case against your wife.

section 498 is not related to hrrassment 498A IPC is related to cruelty. but only women is entitled to file the case/complaint. husband have no right in this regards.

its better u avoid this cruelty and seek help of elders or marriage counsellors before she does anything like this.. look ways and means urgently to avoid this as soon as possible..u urslf try and approach her with positivity .
And if this doesnt help thn dont fear anything jo hoga so hoga..just be brave and confident god is looking us all..dont worry..just do ur bit to avoid her foolishness.
