Now that the case has already been filed against you there is no remedy open to you except to contest his case fittingly in the court. Have you received the court notice asking you to put in your appearance on a fixed date? If yes, then engage a lawyer for your defence. It will not be a cakewalk for you to disprove his case in view of the fact that you did not declare the transaction in your IT returns. It is thus imperative that you engage right away a lawyer so that he can chart out the legal recourse to be followed in the court.

it appears your brother has filed a summary suit for recovery of Rs 4 lakhs with interest . contest case on merits . in your affidavit in reply do not admit that you have to repay sum of Rs 4lakhs . in the  event you admit loan transaction  will have to deposit amount in court or your brother may get a decree in his favour .
