Sir basically there are 2 types of cases:
1. Cognizable - in such cases police can arrest a person without warrant.
2. Non-cognizable - in such cases police cannot make an arrest unless they have a warrant for the same.

If you think one of your relative is going to file a false complaint against you just to harass you, 
we would suggest you that you should make a written complaint to the police that such person will make a false complaint against me to harass me.

Another option available to you is that you can file an application for anticipatory bail.
