Wife threatening husband and his family to commit suicide

What should a husband do in such circumstances?
Present conditions
1.Husband is staying far from his wife and son due to job transfer and unable to travel due to covid restrictions
2.Parents are staying in a seperate place and boy's father is ill undergoing regular kidney dialysis
3.The child is about to be admitted in a junior school
4.Wife has not been fond of the husband's parents or family
5.The wife is getting all necessary livelyhood
for a good lifestyle except she is living with son only.

In such situation the wife threats his husband and his parents that she will commit suicide.
As per her understanding the parents is extracting money from his son for treatment, hence the husband is staying far where he gets better pay.
Though every son should look after his parents as his duty and the wife is twisting this for her own advantage.
The husband's son is not getting is father and she is putting this up as an issue before the husband's parents.

To add on, the husband has bought a 2nd hand car to facilitate the Father's treatment for travelling to hospital
The wife is seeing this as a negligence to her and is demanding that she should also have a car.

Combinations of all such circumstances has made the wife threat the husband and his family that she will do suicide ( in whatsaap) and she will put the entire family behind the bars by mentioning the name in the suicide note.

How can the husband best deal with this by protecting himself and his parents and by law?
Please suggest.

1. Based on the Whatsapp Evidence about Wife's threat to commit suicide, you may file Divorce Petition, and be free of such nefarious wife who will ultimately keep dictating & threatening you for life. For such Cruelty to you, she will not be entitled to any Alimony or Maintenance or any other amounts.

If what you have stated are really true facts, it is unfortunate indeed.  However, it is wise for you to move cautiously as it is not an easy task to fight with the wife and get divorce.  While you have to preserve all kinds of evidence about the threats received from your wife, considering the fact that your innocent child will ultimately be the real victim,  it is suggested that you may try all possible avenues for an amicable solution even by involving community leaders/ elders or other available sources and think about legal action  or divorce proceedings only after exploring all other avenues.  Our law is heavily on the side of women in such matters and as such one should be aware of all consequences before jumping into the court battles.

@ Sweet Boy,

Make reconcillation with your wife through elders/ relatives, discuss and settle the issues amicably and prove yourself to be really a "SWEET BOY". 

Prima facie you are uncaring and least concerned husband/ father.

As per your prima facie,a father/husband who is working in a distant location away from his family and parents looking after all the family and financial needs sacrificing his own well being by not being physically present with the family and leaving no stones unturned to keep his family and parents secure from all aspect ,maintaining every day contacts,providing all household needs to the doorsteps so the family don't have to worry to go out in this covid to buy stuffs, is a least concerned father / husband? Wow,even I didn't knew despite doing all these I am uncaring and least concerned.Thanks.
