What they have done is a crime under the ESI and PF Act. What you can do is the following:
1. You can file a compliant about the same to the ESI and PF office where the company is situated. Any person can compliant about the same even if he is not the employee of the company.

2. If they still don't respond then send them a legal notice drafted by a lawyer;

Section 7A of the said Act provides: Determination of monies due from employers – The Central Provident Fund Commissioner, any Additional Central Provident Fund Commissioner, any Deputy Provident Fund Commissioner, any Regional Provident Fund Commissioner or any Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner may, by order,

i. in a case where a dispute arises regarding the applicability of this Act to an establishment, decide such dispute; and
ii. determine the amount due from any employer under any provision of this Act, the Scheme or the Pension Scheme or the Insurance Scheme, as the case may be, and for any of the aforesaid purposes may conduct such inquiry as he may deem necessary.

3. You can also file an FIR against the company for cheating etc.

you can make complaint into labor court and ask for return your security deposit. also you can complaint into ESIC for deducting pf without pf account. now labor law are so much strong. private companies didn't follow rules so court may teach them what is law and how it works...
