As I know that only after 18 years a girl can marry. Is my brother's second marriage is valid considering the girls age ??

No. Your brother without divorce to 1st wife married a minor girl leads to punishment.

What my brother resist his second wife ???

Your brother has married during the subsistence of first marriage. Your brother is in serious trouble as his second wife has threatened him for legal action. Moreover the girl is 17 years of age.

My brother also threaten his 2 nd wife that he will file a complain against all of her family members that during marriage as per his knowledge the girl was adult. But after marriage he find that she is a minor.
He will file a complain against her family members for promoting marriage of a minor.
Since during marriage the girl was minor, hence as per Hindu Marriage Act it is not a marriage.

The profile of the querist suggest that he or his brother has no real problem. It appears that Mr. Haldar is having some fun at our expense!
