well, my grand mom bought 2 properties with the money that my grand dad used to send her from the states(she did not have an income of her own) . She left a will in which she stated that one of the properties should go to one of her sons. there are 5 siblings and the other to her husband(grand dad) . then my grand dad in turn partitioned the other property between 2 out of the 5 siblings. This was done a decade ago and all were aware of this. Grand dad passed away 5 years ago, now the remaining 3 siblings have put a suit saying that the propertry needs to be divided among all 5 as its ancestral.
1) is this ancestral property?
2) was my grand dad in his rights to divide bw the 2 siblings and leaving the others out?
