Ironically, there is not much you can do to prevent someone from filing a criminal case against you, whether it be a police case or complaint case.
Nonetheless, and assuming that you are not ready to keep your wife and that you are a Hindu, you should file a petition for nullity of marriage or a petition seeking divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act in the court of competent jurisdiction.
You should also file an informatory petition in the court of chief Judicial magistrate saying that your wife is threatening you and can file a false criminal case against you. This is not of much consequence, but may serve as a defence for you in case your wife does actually file a case against you.

Hope this clarifies.
