Check whether FIR has been lodged by seller regarding missing original documents? Whether public notice issued? It may be that equitable mortgage has been created by seller by depositing original title deeds.

If FIR is lodged, public notice issued then you can proceed with purchase of property on basis of certified copy of sale deed.

We would advice you to avoid buying such property.
