Landlord not giving the security amount back
I had been living in a pg for the last 2-3 years.
I vacated the house in april after giving a month's notice in march.At that time he said he will refund the security of 12000 when i leave but at the time of leaving he asked for a week's time so i left and he promised to give back the amount.Now it has been june and whenever i used to call him/msg he continued saying he needs more time and i kept giving him.But now he has even blocked my no. and i call him daily by different no.s and still no result.
I dont have any rent agreement for this.The only proof i have are the whatsapp chats where he kept saying he will return the money.I also have bank statement where every month i used to transfer 12000 rs as rent in his account.
I am really distressed.What are my legal options here now?

Thanks for all the advice.
If I understand correctly then sending a legal notice would cost me more money than I intend to recover.
So filing a complaint in police would be the best approach?
I have one issue though.I don't have the residential address of the landlord as he does not live in the pg.Will this be a problem in filing the police complaint?
