You should reply the legal notice firmly demanding the compensation of this action of the company. Your matter needs detailed discussion. I can draft you a good legal notice for you.

Do you possess any resignation letter duly signed by your previous employer ?

If yes then it can be made as an evidence proving that you left the previous company following all terms and conditions (if set through an appointment letter) .

If no then other modes as making an eyewitness from within the previous office witnessing your innocence.
