If the gift deed is registered by sub registrar and requisite stamp duty is paid then it is very difficult to challenge the gift deed. 

Further, when you get the gift deed you are the title owner and you can sell the property to any one by way of sale deed.

Yes you can sell the property as you like, subject to the gift being a registered gift in accordance with law.
Also your brother's children can only create an issue if it is a HUF or coparcenary property which does not seem to be the case since your brother bought it from your father by a registered sale deed.
Kindly contact for detailed consultation.
