Dear Vinod, You did a mistake. You should not have withdrawn you complaint till the final payment by the accused.The subject matter of the cheque has been closed as soon as you withdraw your complaint.On the failure of the accused to the amount on or before 6th June 09. You can file civil suit against the accused only, for the recovery of amount.The criminal court cannot open the matter again.

the award of lok adalat is deemed to be a decree of civil court which is enforceable by law please go through section 21 of legal services authorities act 1987. go ahead and file execution before competent civil court.
