I will advice you to contact one advocate and get the property documents scrutinised. Onlynafter the scrutiny of the document, he will be able to tell you the legality of you title.

Upon which you can decide to contest the case and prove your right or you can also decide to compromise after negotiation.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

after purchase of the house, were your parents staying in the house for 15 years, or was it let out or vacant.
If your parents were in occupation of the house, then the relative of the seller cannot do anything now, he has no rights, any dispute he can only seek relief from the seller and not you.
If you have received the patta and if the same is incorrect or if there is an error, then file an application with the tahsildhar and seek for rectification of the same.
error or mistake in the patta does not give anybody any right, title or interest in the property.
