Dear questioner, sorry to say but high court can not deal with the matter directly.
There is a jurisdiction bar. On the other hand you can go to the ilaqa magistrate and file a complaint u/s 498-A. Magistrate has power to deal with the matter.

Yes you can move high court and the High court can pass any order it can direct the police to investigate, but you have to satisfy the High court that the recommendation of the committee are wrong. But best course for you is to file a private complaint before the ilaqa magistrate in which the court can summon the accused persons
