If you have apprehension really you may seek police protection legally by informing facts to the Police.  Accidently killing some one in self defense amounts culpable homiside not amounting to murder.  But, you have to establish that it is for self defense and convince police.  So use other methods rather than killing and take ultimate decision only on the basis of no alternative.

U file a complaint against him in local policetation. They take action against him. If they refuses lodge a private complaint in jmfc court orders u to protect from him. Don't take law in Ur hands. Be careful.

First of all you must try to escape.     If you can prove you have no escape, use minimum force to save yourself.    If minimum force justifies killing him, you're not guilty.

Self defence should only be a shield; not weapon.
