If the property given by your grand father is a self acquired property he can dispose it as per his own sweet will and no body has any right to question it. One of the ways of giving property to a person is by way of settlement deed.

Settlement by way of gift can be made to any person and not necessarily to blood relations only. The gift made by your grandfather to his sister in law is therefore legally valid, and cannot be challenged.
