1. Legal Limitation period to claim back Money is THREE years. In your case it is already Five years, hence Civil Court proceedings shall not be possible. However meet a local Civil Court Lawyer with documents, file Recovery Suit application alongwith Delay Condonation Application.
2. You may also prefer to file a Police FIR, requesting investigation and charge-sheet, for various offences like Cheating, Intimidation, Fraud, Breach of Trust, Mischief etc.... against the person, supported with all relevant supporting Documents, Evidences & Witnesses.
3. IF the Police does not take action, THEN you can file private criminal case u/s 156(3) Cr.P.C., in the local Magistrates court, seeking directions to the Police to investigate and file charge sheet. The said Person may come down for settlement.
