if the documents that you submitted with your application are forged then the bank has got every right to file a criminal case against you. they did not verify the genuineness of your document earlier would not be a bar for them to verify the documents and if they are forged then proceed in the matter. Now the remedy will be to prove that the documents were genuine. You may choose to clear the payment of the bank and come to a settlement but if a police case has been lodged it will go on.

You will have to prove the genuiness of the documents and court will acquit you under 420. Payment you may have to pay that either in the court or in settlement.
Prove that your documents are genuine.

the bank can still sue you, you can not escape the criminal liability. no limitation will apply as the offence is punishable upto seven years imprisonment
if your documents are genuine then you need not worry.

insolvency proceedings may not be of much help to you. It is better settle the matters with the bank under one time settlement scheme and get out of the issue.

Even after payment of money to the Bank you did not get rid of the criminal prosecution. The offense under section 420 is compoundable only with the permission of the Court. I think section 406 is not applicable in your case. the best way to contest a criminal case is to adopt delay tactics as delay defeats the law.
