Would you please advice on the following situation:
My brother's marriage lasted two years and they have a daughter of 11 months old; His wife has gone to her parents at least 6 times before this 7th time only this time brother has not gone to her parents' house with or without relatives to negotiate on her/their conditions under their threats.
A few months back when similar situation had taken place, brother had agreed to give it one last go by agreeing with her to move on rented accomodation leaving my old widow mother on her own. He tried his best to make the relationship work but again the inevitable happened. Her mother and father came to the flat and took her. She took all her belongings.
At the time of marriage they had pushed to give a car and we had strongly refused to take it.. They still gave it and when we refused to give our details, they registered it on the girl's name.
Since she is gone and family friends and relatives (common friends and some "extra smart relatives") have tried to convince us to sit down and talk to them about "things" , girl's side had asked someone to get them 20 lakhs from us to end this.
After over 4 months time of her departure, Police officers have come to my mother's house in the last 4/5 days and said that the the car was supposed to be returned to the girl or else the police would have to take it themselves. Knowing nothing about law on this kind of matter, we asked wherever possible and were told that there has been a complaint by the mother of the girl on Mahila Helpline hence police have to take action on this. There is no FIR registered but we have been told that call to Mahila Helpline was enough for the police to take action. Brother is returning the car today with some family friends and the officer(Daroga) who had come home and has been putting pressure regarding returning the car. We have not been given any copy of any report from Mahila helpline or the police as to what allegations have been made against brother. We intend to go through court after this...
Are we going in the right direction please?Requesting for your guidance.thanks,Regards
