Your brother will be required to file a divorce petition under Section13(1) of Hindu Marriage Act on the grounds of cruelty and  desertion . This process is longer and will take approximately 5 years if she contest the divorce.

If she does not contest than, court can pass an exparte decree. Your brother can file this petition within the jurisdiction of Pune as he is currently residing within said jurisdiction.

Further he can also file the case where both the parties last resided together.
