You can file cheque bounce case against your friend after duly serving your friend with a demand notice of payment of money under the cheques. You can file cheque bounce case against your friend irrespective of his filing insolvency case.

Dear sir, as per my knowledge and information you can go a head with filing of cheque bounce case and it is a criminal offence for dishonor of cheque under NI Act.IP is filed to safeguard himself from getting arrested and no sufficient funds to repay the loan amount.
