Sir, prima facie this appears to be a case of cheating and fraud for which you may file a criminal complaint under the IPC. At the same time you have the civil remedy of declaration, rendition of accounts, damages etc which will be preferred before a civil court according to the pecuniary value of the suit

1. You should lodge a criminal complaint for cheating and forgery in the EOW cell.
2. You should file a complaint with the ROC regarding the fraudulent transfer.
3. You can approach the Company Law Board and seek a stay on illegal transfer of shares.
You also need to see whether you had a pre emptive right on transfer of shares.
