If your sister does not intent to take a divorce, we suggest you to first file a police complaint at nearest police station, in which you should specify about the cruel acts by husband and about the fact husband.

Further your query is silent on fact, whether you received notice from court or lawyer? In case you have received notice from court, then we suggest you should file a reply to divorce petition. In addition to this, you should file application under Section 9 of Hindu Marriage Act, i.e Restitution of conjugal rights and a legal way where court can direct husband to stay with you.

If notice is served by a lawyer, then you should reply to the legal notice and also ask about your husband address.
