Your father is not a rightful owner in terms of Transfer of Property Act, since the property is an equitable mortgage in bank and it was not free from encumbrances.However if your father purchased the said property by a registered Deed of Conveyance then your father should file a Declaration and Injunction suit in Civil Court for recovery of damages form the purchaser.Your father can also file a Criminal Case u/sec.420,406 and 427 IPC in Judicial Magistrate Court.
