Regarding safeguarding yourself from her filing a false complaint, we would suggest that you try and collect evidence that proves that she is herself not willing to come back to her matrimonial home.

If it is possible, try to get her to state the reasons for leaving the matrimonial home maybe over the phone which you may record or over messages or email etc. 

Basically, you need to collect materials to prove that you did not subject her to any domestic violence and nor did you make any dowry demands and that she has left the matrimonial home on her own volition for her own reasons.

Furthermore, you can even send a written intimation to the police stating that you suspect that your wife may file false complaints against you.

With respect to a divorce, one option available to you is to go for divorce by mutual consent. However, this depends on whether she is willing to give you a divorce as well or not. 

If she agrees then this is the easiest way of getting a divorce. Otherwise we shall have to fit your situation within one of the grounds enunciated under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act.

You can file a petition for divorce under the grounds of cruelty. The term cruelty includes both mental and physical cruelty. The fact that she left the matrimonial home within 4 days of marriage and has not returned ever since despite all your attempts is mental cruelty. 

Furthermore, the Delhi as well as the Bombay High Courts have held that willful denial of sex by one of the spouses amounts to mental cruelty and therefore, is a valid ground for divorce. 

The fact that she left you and you have stated that you are potent, it shows that she is willfully denying you sex, thus, amounting to mental cruelty.
