I am the complainant in a criminal (Cheque bounce) case. After two years of court hearing, just before the passage of a judgement, the case was settled in the Lok adalat held on Feb. 2012 with the accused. Now the accused is not abiding by the Lok adalat verdict. Do I have to approach my area court for continuing the criminal case or I have to approach my district legal cell for the accused not abiding. Where and how I should represent my case under what section.
Lok Adalat award must be filed in civil court of competent jurisdiction for conversion of the same as decree. After passing of decree, you can file execution petition for execution of the decree for recovery of your money.
