quesWife after leaving me married and living with another man. What to do?

My son's wife left home 2 years ago and is staying with another man after marrying him. We have proofs of her marriage with the other man. Can we file an adultery case against her and ask the police to raid their home and arrest her for adultery?



 



Also, on what all grounds can we file a divorce against her?
