I agree. However, if you want to leave him, there is no restriction in law. You may simply seek a declaration that he is not your legally married husband. Even then, you will be entitled to maintenance / compensation under domestic violence laws. Your option to seek criminal prosecution is also open.

You can declare your marriage null and void and annul your marriage and also file case of 420 and other cases to teach him a lesson.

Good Luck.
