The brother of Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) has been put in jail for assaulting Ms. Azad June of last year:

The brother of Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad was jailed on Friday for six months for attacking his sister after discovering she was dating a non-Muslim.

...

The actress, who now lives in London, had asked the court not to jail her older brother.
But judge Roger Thomas sent him to prison for six months after he pleaded guilty to the assault.
"This persistent attack was accompanied by serious and very hurtful abuse and threats," the judge told the defendant.
"The background to this offence lies in the concern that you, and perhaps other family members, had about Afshan's relationship with a young man who was not of the Islamic faith."

I’m glad her attacker was put in jail for the assault on his sister. too many men get away with abusing women. some of it is truly horrific with long lasting problems for the women who have been so badly abused.
I hope she will be ok.
