As per the current law in force governing the laws of inheritence and succession, i.e the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 and the Indian Succession Act, 1925, all the three daughters are entitled for a share in the anscestral property (keeping in mind the fact that only separate property can be bequethed and not anscestral property). Hence, the suit is maintanable.
