As per your concern it is better to file a complaint in a local police station that has competent jurisdiction over the matter. You may proceed to file the complaint under sections 503 and 499 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860 for Criminal Intimidation as well as Defamation respectively.
(I) Section 499 IPC deals with Defamation.
This section states that - "Whoever, by words either spoken or intended to be read, or by signs or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation concerning any person intending to harm, or knowing or having reason to believe that such imputation will harm, the reputation of such person, is said, except in the cases hereinafter expected, to defame that person".
(II) Section 503 IPC deals with Criminal Intimidation.
This section states that - "Whoever threatens another with any injury to his person, reputation or property, or to the person or reputation of any one in whom that person is interested, with intent to cause alarm to that person, or to cause that person to do any act which he is not legally bound to do, or to omit to do any act which that person is legally entitled to do, as the means of avoiding the execution of such threat, commits criminal intimÂidation".
File a complaint against the lady and all the rest of the accused based upon the sections mentioned above.
