Hello,

In case the couple got married in India, your sister can apply for Divorce at the Family Court in whose jurisdiction the marriage had taken place. You will have to get the summons served in UK to proceed further in the matter.

In case the Marriage took place in UK and is registered there, then the application for Divorce will be filed in UK as per their laws.

Yes she can apply for divorce in the delhi court. The notice of filing of the divorce petition will be sent to the defendant by the court and not you.
