In India, men, unlike women, do not have any specific statute under which they can file a domestic voillence case. But, you may invoke other suits against your spouse and in-laws if you have sufficient cause for doing so. You have not mentioned what made you raise this question, so it is not possible to suggest you anything in specific. Please note that most of the Indian laws see women as victims, so it is not suggested to file cases on your wife or in-laws on the drop of a hat. Try to solve the problem amicably first, if it fails , seek consultation of a prudent local lawyer.
