I lent some money to my friend in 2012. When I asked to repay, he started to avoid me. I filed a case in 2013 U/s 138 of NI act. In 2015, the case was transferred to other city, due to non-home bank branch rule. I was forced to file the case again from start in the court jurisdiction, where the home bank resides. In 2016, the accused died. Is there any way, I can file for recovery of my money? The accused has ancestral property. Is there any time limitation to file for recovery? Are there hopes to attach the ancestral property?
