You need to file a petition for divorce under section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act. Along with the petition file an application for maintenance under section 125 crpc for monthly expenses after getting separated from your husband.
In my opinion you shall also file a criminal complaint under section 498 IPC against the cruelty.
