Well unfortunately it is obvious that your husband wants a divorce and has actions are totally in consonance with that but if you still want to try you can file an Application for Restitution of Conjugal Rights.

Your husband cannot take divorce without your consent. You need to contest the divorce case, and also ask for maintenance. You should also file complaint against your husband for meting out cruelties.

Thank you for your query
It's indeed very sad
Would suggest you to somehow go and stay at his house as its your right to do so
You can then call 100 if they do anything
If he hasn't filed divorce you file it first on ground of cruelty where you can allege him having relations with another woman
You can also file domestic violence and take protection orders
In this way you can stay at their home and fight out
If you don't file divorce just file domestic violence
That should set them right
