Sir, if the police os refusing to file case or FIR you can directly file a private complaint in the court. there is no necessity that your sister only has to file a case even you can file a private complaint on behalf of her

Nothing to worry if police refuse to cooperate with you still you can file a private complaint before Magistrate along with the copy of Complaint you submitted to police along with acknowledgement of complaint (if you have any). The Magistrate will look into the facts and will order the police to investigate the matter and report back to him. Retain competent Advocate in your area. Best of luck
