Caveat is not for this remady you require. Send a legal notice to the sub registrar stating a partition suit is pending before the court, hence no transfer of suiy property by registration may allow. And finally file an interim petition before the court in your pending suit with a prayer to restrain the defendant's from alienating the suit property until disposal of partition suit. Even if no injection is granted also the sale made will hit by lispendence

When the case is pending the ownership is not fully established and any sale during the pending stage is not valid. The other side may be confident of winning the case and that is why they are trying to sell it. Through your lawyer you can try for a stay order.
