yes it is valid . indemnity bond is generally insisted upon to safeguard interests of the purchaser . since purchaser has paid consideration for purchase of property he needs to safeguard his interests against any  claims made by third parties

It is valid. On the strength of the indemnity bond the purchaser can bring a legal action against the seller in the event of any third party disputes emanating in respect of the property purchased by him.

yes both carry the same level of safety . indemnity clause in sale deed should suffice . it is not necessary to  have separate indemnity bond .

It makes no difference in law. There is no legal obligation to have a separate indemnity bond.
