To me, if other joint holders have started construction without your involvement, you shall file a case restraining them not to construction without your involvement. Contact an advocate of your area over the phone and follow his guidance.

You can give a complaint for land grabbing offence or criminal trespass of your property with the local police and escalate the matter to the higher police officer of your town/district if the local police is not cooperating and not taking any action on your complaint. No doubt this is a civil dispute. You can give a complaint to the police and file a suit for permanent/mandatory injunction before the concerned court. the online lawsuits are accepted by courts, hence you can contact an advocate in the local and file the online suit for mandatory injunct9ion immediately

Police can help you only when there is imminent danger of life and / or scuffle resulting in law and order problem between parties but not construction and trespassing your share.
Even when courts are closed due to peculiar COVID-19 condition, you should have engaged a local lawyer for institution of a suit for permanent and mandatory injunction with an application for maintaining status quo, lis pendence. Such cases are being taken up by all the courts.
