Material alteration by whom?

cheque which was subjected to material alteration and that the complainant failed to prove that material alteration of the cheque was done or made by the accused.

Material alteration of the cheque, without the consent of the drawer, makes the instrument void and no criminal action would lie on the basis of such an instrument.
