Hope you have a good lawyer. Discuss with your lawyer on your course of action that you contemplate.
Keep irrefutable evidences and unshakable witnesses that your daughter was handed over to you and by herself came with you.
If police complaint is lodged, update them.
You are natural guardian of your daughter u/Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act as per Section 6 of the Act. Your in-laws cannot keep your daughter away from you as that amounts to violation of custody rights in India. If this problem persists, file an FIR of kidnapping/wrongful confinement against your in-laws u/Sec 359/342 IPC.
As for the demands' part of your in-laws, whatever they demand from you, you keep it in writing from them. That way, later on you can show evidence of their criminal misconduct in unlawfully depriving you from your daughter.
Also approach the MOWCD Child Services Authority in your State. Explain the problem. And let them take up the matter, if they want to. Just DO NOT take away your child by force or enticement, as that would be amounting to kidnapping charges against you.
Consult a local lawyer for advise. If you want to, you can further approach the District/State Legal Services Authorities in the region where you reside.
If there is any further help, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.I will definitely try to help u friend!
Don't worry! Your child will be restored to you sooner than later!
One other thing! Post-recovery of your daughter from your in-laws, file an affidavit in support of claim for custody/access. Include child's full name, DOB, full age, your profession/salary amounts and other detailed particulars such as how exactly you intend to bring up the child. Include these papers in the court file at time of submission.
Follow the advise and good luck!
