I am complainant in one of the 138 NI Act case and already appearing in the case on every date from last 1 and half years. Accused too is appearing on each and every date.
On last hearing accused lawyer did cross of me and same was schduled for next hearing too, now the accused went missing and his family members telling that he left home without informing anyone in the home and no one knows his whereabouts.
So, in this case what best can be done and what are legal steps can be taken?
I sold silver bar to a trader & he gave me a cheque against that silver.that cheque was bounce due to inssufficient funds. My counsel gave him a motice u/s 138 & He returned back half quantity of silver & gave the cheque of balance amount.that cheque was also bounced due to insufficient funds. again we gave him a notice & filed a case against him. he was absent all the court date after NBW he appeared in the court. Court asked him to deposit bail bond of one lac. My question is what will be the further process.
File for appointing an Advocate Commissioner to execute NBW on the accused who will produce him before the court and necessary security will be taken by the court before releasing him on bail. Also find out his property to be attached in case you become successful in your case.
