What defence under The Negotiable Instrument Act is available to the accused who allegely have issued a cheque(bounced after presentation for clearing) in favour of the Complainant and of himself (drawer + drawee) which is an unusual behaviour?

The disputed cheque is having two names as payee, one name is of the complainant and second name is of the accused who issued the cheque.
Cheque is bounced when complainant presented that for clearing.
a/c holder usually issue a Self payee cheque but not on his own name.

Than also you can file the case under section 138 of NIA and also S420 IPC as he tried to cheat you. his intention was dishonest from the starting and he didnot want to pay the money legally due to you....i think there will not be a problem...accused has to satisfy the court why did he issue that kind of cheque...
