the signature on back side of ur client demonstrates the very nature of che being a bearer cheque. The said che can b sent to handwriting expert for his opinion of handwriting on che particulalry of word "A/c Payee" --- if opined in ur favour then u can prove dat the cheque in issue is fraqudently presented and it's is not drawn for legally enforceable liability-- so S.118 of NI Act cud b rebutted. Other prov u/s 139 NI Act automatically becomes rebuttable

Unless it is proved that the cheque was issued towards a specific liability or loan, it cannot be directed against you. You can inform the banker about the loss af the cheque book/cheque so as to avoid anyfurther injury.
