Let all children may join together and file a suit for partition, possession, damages and consequential benefits through a local lawyer.

If the properties have come to your father-in-law by virtue of a WILL, they are his absolute properties, and he can sale them.

Please make sure the legal status of the ancestral properties before taking any action in the matter.

Good Luck,

If it is self acquired property of your father , your father can sell the property with out your permission. But you have option to stop the attitude of your father.   File DVC case by your mother and obtain prohibit orders from court some it will help stop selling away

Without consider any Law , I suggest you to let your wife discuss this matter with her father very  transparently. This may give the positive response. Your wife might  have received things and money during her marriage with you. Be satisfied. Take care of your own property and your Father's property. maintain good relation with every one. Money is not everything.

This may not be ancestral property in the hands of your father in law since it is already on his name (as per your own statement), if that is the case, your wife cannot legally claim a share or right over the property  during his life time.  He can dispose them in the way and manner he may choose and desire.

I have checked the records, all the rights of prorperties have transferred after his father's demise in the settlement. . there are no wills is involved.
