The relinquishment deed needs to have your signature.

If they are missing as specified by you, that you were on official duty,

did you authorise your brother vide power of attorney to sign on your behalf?

if no, then the relinquishment deed stands incomplete. However you can file a recovery suit against your brother for the money he borrowed provided you have some transaction details as a proof that you transferred the money.

To save your property and atleast to retain your share you can proceed with a partition suit.
