Purchase of Minor property

A Hindu grandfather makes a sale deed with one of his Minor Grandson ( Minor age is 5 ) with his mother as guardian. The mother has 3 sons now but the property is in name of eldest son when the grandfather sold that property. My client bought it from the eldest son ( when the minor becomes major; Minor age is 33 when he sold the property to my client ) without the consent of Gaurdian because the minor turned into major at the time my client bought.
Now the other 2 sons have sent us a legal notice that we have also shares in that property. What is the correct law according to this case? Does the younger ones really has a right to claim ?

Irrespective of law, send a reply notice to the other two sons that the property is absolute property of the seller and it was sold at the age of 33 years and it is not ancestral property.
