Yes, the judgement 'Sejal Dharmesh Ved Vs.The State of Maharashtra & Ors. applies in your case. It does not matter if your wife's uncle contacted you or not, the court will see that you haven't been in contact with your wife for 1.5 years and hence DV case is not maintenable after 1 year of non cohabitation.
Your wife can file multiple criminal cases without any evidence as filing FIR doesn't require evidences of the events happened. It is when the charge sheet is filed and case comes to trial, evidences are required. Then in the absence of evidences, the cases will get dismissed. Upon, acquittal, you can file defamation cases as well suit for damages against your wife.
