You can file file a civil suit for malicious prosecution and defamation claiming damages and compensation for the harassment you have been subjected to.

In the alternative, you can also register a case under Section 211 of the Indian Penal Code for the offence of filing false charges against someone with the intent of causing injury or even under Section 500 for criminal defamation.

Kindly contact us for any further details and action.
