As per your say, I think there is a direct threat to your life and also liberty; you should inform your mother or other relatives and also you have to make complaint to police station because as you say, he tried to killed you and this is not a small thing, you should also make complaint to women protection wing at police department and if need ask for protection. If possible, you along with other relatives can take your father to psychologist as his behaviour is not seems to be normal. Don't be afraid to file complaint because he is your father; if possible take help of your friends and relatives for doing this, or else this will also affect your younger brother's life.
And please do not think about suicide, this is a crime and also affect your bro's life. Please think .be brave ...fight for yourself..

firstly try to convince your father that you wish to marry after getting financially settled. if he is not getting convinced then he cannot force you to marry with anyone without your consent and without your wish. you can approach to nearest police station if he is trying to cause harm to you.
