(Fatwa: 440/440/SD=08/1436)

Due to sucking milk of your Nani (grandmother) in childhood your Khala became your sister. Hence it is not lawful for you to marry the daughter of your Khala i.e. your niece.
قال الحصكفي: حرم على المتزوج – أخته وبنتها – (الدر المختار مع رد المحتار : 3/29، كتاب النكاح، باب المحرمات، دارالفكر، وقال: فيحرم منه أي: بسببه ما يحرم من النسب (3/213، باب الرضاع) .

Allah knows Best!
