Dear Legal Proffessionals,
I had posted on this forum earlier on a situation where my FIL had taken over Rs 50 lakh Rs from me and promised that he will build a property for me. A total sum of Rs 80 lakhs was given to him by me over a period of 10 years.
Now, my FIL is absonding and does not answer my phone calls, emails. I personally went to visit him in Chennai and his property is locked. I am based in USA and it is difficult to chase someone in India who wants to evade phone calls and emails.
Finally, I have drafted a official notice to him and planning to mail it by registered US Postal service. Pls see the document attached to this case for info.
Next, I have called the Police Station in Chennai to register a case. I am not sure under which section will the Police register the case ?
What should be my next steps in filing a law suit ? What is this case about - Cheating ? Breach of trust ? Criminal breach of trust ?
I tried to do a layman research on the keyword "cheating" and I see that there are more than one legal interpretation for cheating. I was under the impression that cheating was 420 only.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
