You can file a suit for declaration that the land was purchased by your grandfather and, after his death, will belong to his legal heirs. You can also refute the Will being shown by the alleged purchaser on the ground that even after more than twenty years, the land is still in your grandfather's name and hence the Will cannot be relied on. Please seek a lawyer for expert guidance.
