If it is your father’s house then the women does not have any right on the property of her in laws,. She has right to residence at the property of your elder brother or he is required to provide an accommodation.

We will suggest you that your mother should file a complaint at nearest police station against your elder brother’s wife  for domestic violence. Further you should speak to your brother and ask her to provide an alternative accommodation.

As per the contents of the problem it seems that the property is in the name of your parents. If it is true and the same is self acquired by your parents, she can't claim any right/partition in the same. Your parents may file a suit for permanent and mandatory injunction against your sister in law for restraining her entry in the abovesaid property and if she is the possession of any part of property then suit for possession
and permanent injunction may be filed against her.
