After how many years of marriage? If that fact came in knowledge just in few days of marriage, the annulment of marriage on this ground can be filled as soon within one year, however if this fact came to knowledge after marriage and many years have passed, than the delay in filling for annulment will be ground for rejecting the annulment petition by the court. Unfit mental condition should be serious enough that makes the continuation of marriage not possible.

Only possibility is divorce on valid ground available to you, I.e. cruelty. As far mentally unfit , as informed unless her exact complication is known this may not be ground for divorce.

If her mental disorder is very serious and incurable, you can file divorce petition under Section 13(1)(iii) and it also amounts  to cruelty then add section 13(1)(ia) of HMA.
