Financial extortion of senior citizens
1). I Shri Arun Bijoy Das, age-73 yrs, has been financially extorted by a person named Vishal Burnwal, as explained below through point no 2. and ahead.
2). Vishal has coerced me and my wife Smt. Manorama Das, age-63 yrs, to pay an amount of Rs. 52000 (through bank transactions) to him.
3). Vishal is claiming that my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das, age-38 yrs, had taken a loan of Rs. 4, 70,000 from him.
4). As a proof of above mentioned claim (as mentioned in point no-3. above) he has produced a cheque amounting Rs. 4,70,000 which was issued by my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das and on behalf of a company which was jointly formed by my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das along with two other friends of him.
5). When I asked my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das about this debt (as mentioned in point no. 3 and 4. above) he denied about it. As per my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das, Vishal was a normal employee of his company (as mentioned in point no. 4 above) and was once approved with that cheque (as mentioned in point no. 4 above) for official purpose. But Vishal mislead him by saying that he lost the cheque on his way towards bank. Later one day, after getting fired from the company Vishal tried to encash that cheque (as mentioned in point no. 4 above) and might got bounced due to insufficient fund.
6). I along with my younger son (Mr. Subhajyoti Das) also tried to mediate a meeting between my elder son Shri Debajyoti Das and Vishal Burnwal to get the authenticity of above mentioned claim (as mentioned in point no. 3 and 4. above), however Vishal never visited the meeting venue even if he has been requested for the same.
7). Even I requested Vishal Burnwal to submit a court affidavit against his claim, however till date he has not submitted it.
8). Taking the advantage of absence of my sons (I am having two sons Shri Debajyoti Das and Shri Subhajyoti Das, both of them use to stay far away from me and my wife for their own job and business purpose) Vishal along with his alliances is creating pressure on me and my wife Smt.Manorama Das, age 63 years, to pay him that entire cheque (as mentioned in point no. 4 above) amount of Rs. 4, 70,000.
9). Several times Vishal tried to take away various valuable utensils and electronic accessories of our house.
10). He is also pressurizing me to sell one of my properties and pay him the remaining so called debt (as mentioned in point no. 3 above) amount.
11). Being afraid I already paid Vishal Rs. 52,000.00 (through bank transactions) as he and his alliances threatened me and my wife to kill.
12). My wife broke her right foot and left hand due to Vishal and his alliance’s physical harassment to her.
13). One day Vishal came with a person who introduced himself as a police official of the local Police Station and threatened me to pay Vishal’s so called debt (as mentioned in point no. 3 above) amount otherwise he will take me and my wife to local Police Station and torture us till we die.
14). Please advise.

Thanks to all of you for such a wise advise, however stating about my approach to local Police Station (on this regard), please be informed that
1). multiple times me along with my wife and son (the one against whom Vishal brought the allegation of borrowing money and issuing cheque) has visited local Police Station to lodge a complaint.
2). But police refused to register any F.I.R. against it as they believe "The complaint do not constitute any cognizable offence".
Please advise what should be my next step?
