If there s no registered Will then you can file for partition of the property before court but before that issue a legal notice through a lawyer. If they produce the Will before the court they need to prove it through the witness of the said Will. Even if it's registered Will and witness won't lead evidence or gives evidence against them then Will won't stand and court can set aside the Will and whereby property will be divided equally.

AS you told there is WILL which does not carry any signature or Witness there means that said WILL does not stand legally. You can ask partition. Let her prove the originality of the WILL. Here you all get equal share in the property.

Apart from that will should carry the signature or Thumb mark of the executor and the same should be attested by 2 witnesses.

As you told there is nothing, then you can seek partition of the fathers property.
