Firstly you can file petition under section 9 of Hindu Marriage Act for the restitution of conjugal rights if you want to keep your relations going and it will also help you in criminal proceeding also.

You should immediately file anticipatory bail. Anticipatory bail can be applied if there is a reasonable apprehension I’d arrest in a non bailble case .Whether F.I.R u/s 498 a is registered or not by the police till now does not make any difference.
