No reply can be given without facts. If same transaction creates two offence then two trials can be there.
1. Cheque bouncing case u/s 138 N.I.Act, is a private criminal complaint and CANNOT be filed in the same application with other criminal offences.
2. Both CANNOT be heard concurrently and trial will also take independently.
