Your question is not clear. You said owner filed a case against you, what is that case?
Secondly, if your agreement with owner is subsisting and there was no default in terms & conditions of that agreement on your part, then you don't have to be worried. You go as per your agreement.
Thirdly, if you get any types of threats, you can file complaint to police about the same.
For specific answer, please give complete details.

maharashtra rent control act specifically protect the rights of tenants. firstly you are required to sure that you are having with you the documentary evidence to show that you are in possession of that shop for last 40 years. if you are having sufficient evidence then submit it in to the court in which case is pending against you. in maharashtra rent control act there is a specific provision for recovery of possession from tenants. if your landlord not complied with those provisions then he is not entitled to get possession from you in-spite of the fact that he has done a notary agreement with another person. if such another person threaten you on the basis of so called notary then you are required to lodge a complaint against him.
