Dear Sir / Madam,
If your father has not left behind a Will, his property vests in his wife. Each sibling will be entitled to a fifth share i.e 4 acres of land in their name, if and only if, their mother consents to the land partition. Your brother cannot take an adhoc 10 acres of land without your mother's consent. Yes, it is legally possible to reclaim the 10 acres of land that your brother has usurped.
