No but in order to initiate any action against him you shall have to explain as to why did you keep mum for 30 years from the last incident and one another thing shall have to be considered that what would be the effect of your family life if you are a married lady.

Why at all u want to initiate a legal action so late . because same question will faced by at every stage of case. Please clarify it why you have not taken any action after that. Why u allowed thirty years passed away & at all why you want action now. Because same defence will be taken by ur brother though legally there is no time bar for a legal action in a criminal offence. So before u proceed u must have a convincing ground.
