Petition for divorce can be filed on the ground of desertion and cruelty. if they filed a complaint under 498A, you can also take a defence because of the filing of the case they have filed the complaint and nothing prevents your cousin brother's wife to file a complaint against her husband and in that case you have got a valid defence of filing the criminal complaint is only to harass and nothing else.
