The interest demanded is exorbitant. That can be only a defense for your client. Demand for the adjustment of the excess interest towards the principal. So, the cheque value is higher than the legaly enforceable debt.

If loan ofone lac is taken and only60 thousand refunded then how can the accused be saved from the clutches of 138; more so if the accused has agreed to pay the interest. At the most he can claim that interest rate is very high.
