I had been sold property by A, who now wishes to sell it to another person,B. I have signed only as a witness and not as confirming party or as consenting witness in the sale deed to B. Will this be valid?

No. It seems that you are the attesting witness of that sale deed. So its clear that the sale was held with the knowledge of you, then how can you sell to another?.

Ur Q requires much more clarity to the effect as to what kind of agreement you had with A. If you have signed the sale deed to B as a attesting witness, there is no bar for you from challenging it since the Attesting witness need not know the contents of the deed. He only attests saying that the deed was executed by a particular person in his presence and the person who executed the deed was in sound state of mind and that he was not under any undue influence, coercion etc.,
