In this case, you can file a criminal case against your brother in law for theft, narrating all the things in regard to it. However, you need to keep in mind one that that, if you go on with such a complaint, the said matrimonial relationship will be broken for ever, without leaving a chance for settlement talk and mediation in and outside the court.
