Evicting your mother is totally illegal and you can file a suit for declaration, injunction and Partition and get an order from the court allowing your mother to resume residence in the house.

Also, if your father has passed away intestate then all of you have a share in the property and hence the need to file a suit for partition.

She has full right to live in her husbands property. However in case the deceased has left behind a will than, the contents of the will needs to be taken into account before giving any opinion. In the meantime, file a suit for Injunction and the court will ensure that she is not dispossessed without due process of law, if at all required.
