I assume that you have the title papers of the property showing the house in the name of your mother.
You have two remedies. One, file a criminal complaint with police for Criminal Breach of Trust. Second file a civil suit for possession. For both, it may not be a bad idea to first send him a legal notice asking him to hand you over the possession of the property or else you would be charging him mesne profit/damages at the market rate of rent per month, indicating clearly the amount.
Approach court / police.
