The wife of your brother friends cannot take any action against your friend.

However he can take action against the brothers friend parents.

The brother friend can file a divorce petition on the ground of cruelty.

They cannot file a false complaint solely on your friend. Infact when a file a domestic violence case against your friend's brother then they can make your friend as a one of the parties to the case. As of now there is no need to file any case on behalf of your friend. it is better to watch and see on the developments.
