No.  You sent them to an address.  They went to the address.  That's how bitcoin works.

or i need to contact blockchain?

Blockchain.info runs a website that tells you what they see on the bitcoin network.  There is nothing they can do to change what you did.

please advice me how to recover those back.

regards

If that address is an address from Coinbase.com, then Coinbase.com has the bitcoins.  You can contact them and see if they are willing to do anything to help you.

That address should still be associated with you sister's account.
I've re-used old addresses many times on Coinbase, never a problem.
Ask your sister to login to Coinbase -> Tools -> Addresses.

Depending on fees, you paid, transaction can take a few hours up to days. So there is still no need to worry. "Old" addresses are still working except your sister closed coinbase account.

I'd check this first if I were you, you transaction might not even be confirmed.
I'd be surprised if Coinbase doesn't automatically add the balance of old addresses. If they don't, you need to contact their support as other people said.

got a reply from coinbase they have just copy pasted the FAQ of bch..it was also the fault of Kraken which gave me the option of converting and sending bch to btc address.
the system game the option and quantity of btc which is processed and confirmed as success when i transfered.
Kraken says contact coinbase..and coinbase is not interested

Ahhhh ok... so what you're saying is that you withdrew BCH from Kraken... and sent it to a BTC address on Coinbase?

If so, they only people who can help you are Coinbase. They will need to retrieve the BCH for you as they are the only ones with the private keys for the address you sent it the BCH to.

Also, it isn't Kraken's fault that BCH and BTC addresses are identical... There is absolutely no way for Kraken (or any other wallet/exchange provider) to be able to prevent this. If you want to blame anyone, blame the BCH devs for not implementing unique addresses... and yourself for not being more careful.

Well, Coinbase will never give you the private key, so you can't retrieve the BTH yourself. If they are not willingly to help you retrieve them now, you just have to wait until 01.01.2018, when they officially support BTH.
If that is the case I suggest you submit a request to them now and claim the BTH, so when the time comes they have your ticket open and can help you retrieve them.
