We suggested you to file divorce petition  under Section 13(1) of Hindu marriage act on the ground of false commitments from you husband, and you can also take the plea of cruelty and mental agony. 

Along with this petition you can file case under domestic violence wherein you can seek compensation on ground of cruelty and mental harassment.

Yes, you can file a divorce and seek maintenance. Since your husband is also physical and mentally harassing you, you can file a complaint under the protection of women against domestic violence Act. You can also get compensation for harassment under this complaint.
