Now u have just one option and that is divorce from the court Or by registered divorce and definitely girl will ask allimony or maintenance from u .As she can not do anything as u both r not staying together for long time so she cannot file sec 498 A against u.

To cancel marriage registration you can file suite for cancellation of marriage registration. Where the marriage is registered. You say that your marriage is not done according to Hindu religion you can prove that in court.
