A will is a wish to be carried out after the death of a person.For a will to be VALID certain pre requisites are essential. In your case the WILL is invalid because a person having an interest in the WILL cannot be a witness nor an executor of the WILL.Therefor as par law, your grand dad died without a WILL. Challenge it in court and you will win.
