To be more clear, I want to explain the situation - when my cousin brother was not at my location, he requested his friend for money for 50,000 Rs. To deposit that amount into my brother's account - his friend asked him for a blank cheque. As my cousin brother was not currently available at this location - he called me and asked me to give my signed blank cheque to his friend. He mentioned that, he will be back in 2 days and will get my cheque back by replacing with his cheque.
Asking him many times, he said he will get it soon but has not got it till date.
As my cousin brother has no source of income, his friend did not accept his cheque even after his return. My cousin brother has not yet paid his amount and took money from him many time. Now His friend is forcing me to pay back the amount - which he is now saying as 20 Lakhs. His Friend warns that he is going a file a case against me in his native remote village which is almost 700 kms mentioning that I need to attend the court by travelling that huge distance which will even impact my job.
I have given my cheque in the year 2010. Apart from the blank signed cheque I have not at all signed any other documents.
As per CTS 2010 - Is my cheque given him in the year 2010 still valid to file a case against me.
Will it come under Legally Enforceable Debit (as I have not signed any documents/promicary notes etc).
Kindly assist me, how to proceed on this.
