Witness signature on Gift Settlement deed
Person X has a self-aquiried property. This person X has 2 sons and a daughter. Person X passed away intestate (his wife also passed away) and the property was tranferred to two sons by 'Gift Settlement Deed' where the daughter had signed as a witness. When she signed, she was ignorant of her rights.
1. Can she approach the court for her share of property as legal heir?
2. How signing the 'Gift Settlement Deed' as witness effect the case?
3. If daughter was already given a few acre of land by Person X when he is alive, can she ask for share from person X in above case? does court disfavour in such case when asking for share in the property of Person X after he passed away intestate?

-----> I presume gift deed was executed by X
After X passed away intestate, his property was transferred to his wife only. Then, the wife did the Gift settlement deed to two sons only (daughter signed as witness). After some time, wife also passed away.
Can daughter have share in this property? Signing as witness on Gift Settlement Deed mean giving up her rights?
