No. You have to wait for 1 year. You have to first file a suit for judicial separation and after one year (assuming you two have not reconstituted your conjugal relationship), you may file a suit for divorce.

The divorce petition can be filed only after a period of one year from the date of marriage. But if the husband and in laws are harassing you can file a petition for domestic violence and for maintenance.
