After the sale the seller ceases to have any right, title or interest in the property, so no succession devolves on his heirs. The heirs of seller can claim a share in the property only if they can prove that the property was ancestral or that the sale deed had not been validly executed.

12 years is the statutory limitation for seeking or making any claim on property. You and your dad have been in possession of the property since more than 30 years, mutation is also in your name. the legal heir who ever is making any claim, just reject it, if he wants to move court then let him do it. Don't bother, but at any cost do not let go of your physical possession over the property.

The claim of the legal heir of deceased 'A' is barred by limitation and he has no right to claim the property now that too after a lapse of 44 years from the date of completion of sale.

If you have proper registered  sale deed conferring the title, you need not worry about it, let them file any case, they cannot succeed.  There is a land mafia running clandestinely in Bangalore indulging in such anti social and illegal activities.  These people may also be a part of sch gang, so just do not be worried if you have all the papers properly and the property is in your possession. 
Even if your sale deed was not registered, he law of adverse possession operates, hence there is nothing to be worried about it.
