Property purchased in the name of your Hindu mother became her sole property and if she dies without making a Will it will be inherited by her husband and all her children, each getting one share each in that property. Right to seek her one share in the property of mother exists for your sister irrespective of who paid for purchase of the property in her name. Best safeguard is making Will to protect one's financial aspect.
