Q assalam alaikum,
my sister-inlaw took khula from my brother and is refusing to return the mehr. What is the ruling regarding this matter?

Khula and mehr are seperate issues.
Mehr is her marital right that she has the right to accept and fully keep or give back in the amount she so wishers. Mehr cannot be taken away merely due to a divorce.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
