1.It is to be seen whether there is any indemnity clasue in the sale deed.
2.Generally such clause remains in the sale deed and if it is there Raju is bound to compensate the buyer.
3.If there was fraud on the part of Raju in selling the land then the  case of cheating can be filed.
4.Do Note that each and every dispute which Raju may have with his relatives is not enough to file case of cheating. His relatives may have some dispute which has no legal basis for which raju wouldn't be held responsible.

Ignore such demands. If the buyer has possession of the proeprty then let Raju's relatives approach court and seek remedy on proof of their title in the proeprty, if any.

1) if it was self acquired property of Raju his relatives would have no share in property 

2) relatives have to file suit to set aside sale 

3) buyer can sue Raju as per indemnity clause in sale deed

Raju is responsible to settle this with his relatives. Tell the relatives to approach Raju and not to disturb your peaceful possession over that property. If they still do not cooperate, intimate the Police.

If such demand is being raised then you may conveniently ignore any such demand. 
Let relative of Raju reach the court to seek appropriate remedy. 
Please tell me about the indemnity bond and then only can I advise you as to buyer can sue Raju or not?

It is the fault of the buyer for not enquiring properly before buying the property.
He can ask the vendor to clear this litigation.
