The idea of absconding was not a good idea legally. Yes they can definitely put charges of theft.

We suggest you to go back to your organisation and give apology letter. Thereafter properly submit you resignation letter and complete your full and final settlement. With respect to bond if the company has spent money on your training then you are liable to pay the money.

However if no training was imparted by organisation then the bond is illegal.
