Yes you can, but that won't satisfy the purpose. 


Thanks & Regards

There is no infirmity to send the written reply from your place to the police station owing to the distance that matters.

You can even remain silent waiting for further action to be taken by the police which is situated more than 1000 kms away from your place.

Dera Client, You should appear in person, or you may try to get FIR quashing Petition before High Court, and if you need any more clarification, you may contact us. Then I'll explain properly about your case.

Before registration of FIR the police (PS where complaint is lodged) shall have to satisfy to take cognisation of allegations or reject it, accordingly it would be appropriate to appear personally before the IO who have issued notice u/s 41 CrPC.

Presumably your wife resides at the station about 1000 kilometers away from you, at her parental house (your sasural) isn't so ? Hence you can have a glimpses of your in-laws place.
