If you have an order or anticipatory bail or stay of arrest (from High Court) in your favour, then in my opinion you don't do anything and keep cooperating in the police investigation. If not, then obtain anticipatory bail or stay of arrest order. Once chargesheet is filed, challenge the proceedings of criminal case under sec 482 CrPC.

Under offence of 420, police is bound to file charges geet within 60 days of arresting of accused..However police can apply for extension of time and that is on the discretion of magistrate to give or reject such extension...You can call ud fir more info..Regards team lawyer Mitra
