You can make an application under section 12 of Guardian&Wards Act 1890 and get visitation and interim custody.

Since, you have shared limited facts, this is the best solution to get interim custody/visitation rights for your child.

You may approach the court and contest for custody of the child, even if custody will not be given later, you will definitely get a fixed schedule to meet your son, twice or once a week. And that'll be helpful.

In such a case you have the option of filing for the custody of your son and seek visitation rights in the same petition. Court will order your wife to allow you to speak to your son, meet him, be involved in his education and other decisions. However, final advice depends on the entire facts of your case.

Dear sir,
Father is the natural guardian of his children according to the Hindu Minority and guardianship Act. Therefore You are entitled to claim custody of your child. File a custody petition before the family court seeking his/her permanent custody.
