Salary dues from employer and mental harassment

I was working with proprietorship based IT company (Noida based) from past 7 years. I left the organization on August 31st due to non-payment of salaries form a long time; 4-month salary is due in total from June to September. After following up for 4 months, it seems that they don’t want to pay the same. I went through lot more that I cannot explain here. I have all the documents with me like Resignation Acceptance Email, Salary Slips, Employment Letter Bank Statements and Relieving Letter. What actions can I take to recover the salary?

you should serve a legal notice upon the employer to clear your dues within 30 days from receipt of your notice and if they do not pay even after receipt of the notice then file a Suit for Recovery of Arrears of Salary in the Civil Court of the area where the company is situated.
