Dear Friend

The case for criminal prosecution cannot be instituted in Mumbai as cause of action has arosen in Nagpur and the cognizance of the offence is to be taken by that court, before which proceeding is held.

In accordance with the provisions of Section 19and 20 of the CPC , the suit for compensation for wrongs done to the plaintiff can be filed within local limits of the court where the cause of action arose or where the defendant resides, works for gain or carries on business ,at the option of the plaintiff. So at both Nagpur and Mumbai the the suit is maintainable.
