As per the Hindu Succession Act. the property is divided amongst window wife of deceased and children. If as per the Will, if the property was given to some other person and the brothers were just appointed executor then they cannot sell the property to anyone.

We suggest you to file a suit thereby seeking cancellation of sale deed and place the Will on record.

Further you can file a criminal case against your Grandfather's brother for cheating under Section 420 IPC and make the buyer also a party.
