You can approach concerned Magistrate by filing a petition under "Protection of women from Domestic violence act". From there you can get protection from mental and physical harassment from your husband by appropriate orders.
For getting monthly maintenance you can approach concerned Family court as per Sec.125 of Cr.P.C. you may get divorce also under Sec.13 of Hindu marriage act

The solution is very simple. You may go to the local police station and submit a complaint of Domestic Violence before them. If the police refuse to register a case, you may approach the nearest Magistrate Court in the area through an advocate. In case you need any assistance please contact me.
