The person has to issue a notice to you with in one month of bounce. No he can't. But if you give a cheque again and present it then cheque bounce case arise. It is criminal and not civil. The information is sufficient.

If he has deposited the cheque in May 2018, then he must have sent you a notice stating that the cheque has been dishonoured. Did he issue any such notice and have you received it? If he has not sent any notice then he cannot file any case against you now. So dont worry about it. Also he cannot file any case against your sister because he will not know that the cheque belongs to her. For any further assistance you may contact me.

He can not only file a cheque case, he can also file an FIR for cheating. If I was his advocate, I would ask my client to initiate three different cases. 1) Money Suit. 2) 138 NI Act 3) FIR under 420 and 464. Since you have posted this query, you will have to wait for him to do either of the three and defend your sister's case claiming that there is no actual debt for issuing the cheque. Consult with an advocate immediately after receiving the legal notice from your supposed friend.
