Dear Sir,

The fact has to be known as to why your father issued a cheque to the businessman? Did your father issued the said cheque as part of the payment terms under agreement and the same is mentioned in the agreement? The agreement as well as the notice your father received from the businessman have to be perused to render proper advice. Contact a lawyer and take his help.
