You have a fot case to come before High Court under writ petition claimimg relief for yourself and your family. If your father's employment was based upon false submissions of educational documents then that should have been verified at day one and a criminal case should have been brought up agaisnt him. But nothing of that sort happened in actual and the departmental enquiry took so long that your father passed away so you can claim compensation for the wrong done by them.
